Linda Pastan

Today at The Writer’s Almanac:

I want to write you
a love poem as headlong
as our creek
after thaw
– from love poem (Linda Pastan)

I went looking for more, found this and thought it very apt:

And the words are so familiar,
so strangely new, words
you almost wrote yourself, if only
– from A New Poet (Linda Pastan)

Very nice. I’ve added her Selected Poems to my wishlist.
