Only if you aim well 🙂
She does. 🙂
A continuous objective with success.
She may well be my favourite contemporary poet.

I will have to check out Mary Oliver. Not so familiar with her work.
She’s one of my favorite modern day poets. Her arrows definitely do reach their target.
(Oh Ben, sorry I’m so behind on blog reading – will try to catch up a little right now….)
No need to apologise, Betty. It is nice to see you posting on your site(s). Comments are a bonus. 🙂 Besides, I still owe you a response to your e-mail.
No pressure there! I understand – and now ’tis the hectic holiday season so things just get busier.
BTW, thank you for your visits on my GK blog – probably bit off more than I can chew (hmmm…. tastes soapy too!) but needed the korny komic relief.
Thanks for the introduction to this excellent marksman.
My pleasure. 🙂
True, that. I also keep company with one of her oldest friends, which is sweet. Birds of a feather.
One big family. 🙂
She is an extraordinary poet, isn’t she?
Every now and again something and immediately know it must be her. There are very few writers of whom that is true.
