The Dazzle of the Light

Dear Mary,

I came across your poems during a time when I needed my eyes and heart opened to what Whitman called “the dazzle of the light.” Why I Wake Early was a large part of why I overcame my struggles with depression. Your words, “I live in the open-mindedness of not knowing enough about anything,” continue to inspire me, and I remind my high school students of this quote multiple times each semester. You have helped me realize my own thirst for knowledge and for the world itself. I hope to honor you and other poets with each word I write.

For your wisdom I am forever grateful.


P. J. Williams
