They Knew Something About These Creatures

Dear Mary,

Your poetry was a crucial highlight for many of the children in my poetry workshops in mostly rural South and North Carolina in the late 80's-early 90s because they could see those buzzards and deer and snakes and bears sleeping like two sisters and they knew something about these creatures. Your poetry made them want to know more.  And so they wrote in astonishing ways in response to your astonishing poems.  "Thank you" is inadequate for the good your words did then and now, too. 
All blessings to you in your hours of need.
