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.

I adore her poem, Teenager. Thank you for directing me to "More Szymborska".
