Wisława Szymborska, 1923-2012
Harriet has a charming small-post here.
Szymborska came up often in my workshops with MDB, and I have several variations on her Selected in my bookshelves. This weekend, I will curl up with one, run my fingers along that spine, think of another poet the world is now without.
