I'm writing to tell you how much pleasure your poem "Some Herons" has given me. I cannot see a heron now without thinking of blue preachers or Chinese poets. I think your poem amazing: before coming across it I felt that almost everything had already been said about herons, they're such an iconic bird, but your poem is startlingly fresh. Thank you so much for it, and I send you greetings and good wishes for positive improvements in your health from the very ancient walled city of Chester, England, where I live and write.
