Tonight no poetry will serve

As I'm sure many of you know, Adrienne Rich passed away less than a month ago. If you haven't read much of her work, I'd strongly recommend it. Her poetry moves me in a way that shakes me at the bones, moving out into my stomach and chest and head. It's a strange sort of feeling. But it's good. Definitely good.

  1. Again, you've given me something to read, reread, think about, think about some more. Great choice of poem (again), Liz :)

  2. I haven't read much by Rich, but I think this poem is wonderful! I'm putting her work on my TBR list. Any recommendations?
