May I introduce you to a remarkable poet you’ve maybe never heard of? Ruth Stone is a poet beloved by many poets, which could mean her poetry is difficult, allusive, fussy, but it doesn’t mean that at all. Ruth Stone writes with great humor, an irony that looks up rather than down, and with an eye for the ripe image. I just read some of her poems to a UU group and they laughed and cried right along with Stone.
And please take awhile to enjoy Bloom — lots of beauties there!
