The poetry excerpt for today comes from Robert Wallace’s 1979 poem “The Girl Writing her English Paper.” You can read the whole poem (about half-way down the page) and a biography of Mr. Wallace here. The photograph (taken in Big Bear, California) is by my exceedingly talented photographer friend, Ms. Dawn Wenrich. Check out her website here to see more of her fantastic black and white, landscape, and portrait photography. My inner illustrated poetry muse has paired her photography before with one of my own epigrams and also with the classic poem “The World” by welshman Henry Vaughan. Enjoy!
