A Summer Day

Dear Mary,
It has been more than 20 years ago that I attended a seminar and the presenter read "A Summer Day." My soul knew that it had heard something amazing. I had to find out more about you and your work. Happily, I now own most of your books of poetry and they have given me much such blessing and inspiration.

Also, I am a therapist. When I need to make a point with a client, I often go to one of your poems. The result is always the same......the necessary tears come, or there is a moment of profound silence that speaks the awareness that needs to come. Your book New and Selected Poems is sitting on a table in my office as I write this.

You have spoken to and for several generations of women. I thank you for your work. I look forward to new poems, and wish you a healing to your body and spirit, that you have given to so many of us.
Warmest regards,

Carol G. Adams, LCSW
