On Reading Jane Kenyon


It is sad …

… sad

to encounter a poet you like

no, love

no, like is too strong a word

and love the word too weak

either way, it is sad

to encounter a poet you …

… you something between like and love

only to learn they died

far younger than you are now

and you cant help but wonder

“How did they pack so much …

… so much experience

into so short …

… far too short a span of years?”
