« "Shabbat Candles" [by Rosanna Warren] | Main | The French and the British Vie for the Yankee Dollar »

Outstanding. Thankee.

I love the measure of the line and the precision in this poem, the town names, the travel, the radio, the dolphin (!!!), the close attention to everything that happens. Reading it made me want to sit and narrate something myself, with (I hope) as much vigor and total sensory force.

Thank you for the comment, Professor.

I can't love this enough, beautiful, the feeling, the point-on prose .. I can smell the sea weed. How gorgeous

Thanks for the comment, Tina. It is a wonderful poem (and set in my favorite part of Ireland).

What a sunny and hopeful poem to read in the cold damp of another pandemic February.
Thank you!

Glad you liked it, CDM
