« Joni Mitchell [by Lewis Saul] | Main | Seamus Heaney: 10th Anniversary of His Death [ed. Terence Winch] »

Beautiful remembrances of two fine poets. Thank you.

Two wonderful poems. "Chelsea/Suicide" is stunning. Thank you.

Thanks, Denise. I'm sorry I never met Ed Ochester. I assume he was the one who accepted my latest book for the Pitt Poetry Series, for which I am very grateful. Sorry for your loss of both these poets.

Thank you Denise. I know this double loss hits you hard. Stacey

Thanks so much for this post. Two genuinely beautiful people, two brilliant poets. So sorry for your loss--I know how much they meant to you.

Thank you for this post, Denise. I think you know Maureen and I were at VC together -- her work was brilliant even then. I will always remember her as generous, frank, courageous. I know Ed Ochester only by his wonderful work, but know from others he was lovely. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Thank you, Denise. I am so sorry you have lost your brilliant collaborator and your generous editor, to whom I also owe gratitude. Rest in poetry is such a wonderful wish. You are a source of light and consolation.
