The Farmer

The Farmer

–by Me

I am reposting this in honor of National Poetry Month and to commemorate the poem it is based on, The Snowman by Wallace Stevens.  That is a poem that nearly 4 years ago changed my life. Thank you Wallace Stevens and thank you Alan Seltzer for reading and discussing it after meditation that Monday night.  It reminded me of my love of poetry and sparked a creativity and curiosity that I had forgotten.  I am still writing and still curious and owe a debt to poetry and to you Alan.

Here is the original poem by Wallace Stevens:

  1. No debt owed, April. But if there were, you have repaid it many times over. You have contributed so much with your poetry. I have enjoyed reading it and continue to enjoy reading it. I appreciate your talent, your creativity, and your open and honest engagement with life. Keep up the good work on your excellent blog!
