Poems at Mezzo Cammin



Take a look at the new issue--lots of familiar and not-so-familiar names in the realm of women-who-write-formal-poems. Also, please look at the just-prior and brand new post about "The Magician's Card," an essay written for Fujimura Institute.

  2. Thank you for so often posting such intriguing links (such as today's link) that I would have otherwise never encountered. Clearly I need to expand my horizons. And clearly you are helping me do just that.

    1. The web is a garden of forking paths.

  3. Lovely as usual, and coincidentally, another friend, Joan Mazza, a contributor to The Liberal Media anthology, has poems in the same issue! A wonderful two-fer.

  4. Interesting to see Seree Zohar in that same issue, too. She collaborated with the late Alan Sullivan on his remarkable (and not widely-enough-distributed) translation of the Book of Psalms.

    1. Oh, I don't know that translation--sounds like my kind of thing, too. Shall take a look around.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
