On the Death of an Infant – Turner – Collage 1

OntheDeathofanInfant1

The second in our winter themed set of poems is Frederick Turner’s “On the Death of an Infant.” This poem packs such an emotional punch into 4 lines that it couldn’t be contained by just one illustration. This is the first of two collages that Kerfe Roig created for this poem. I loved them both and so wanted to give each one a chance to shine – and for the effect to build; I’ll be posting the second one tomorrow (blizzard permitting). Mr. Turner has an extensive website with information all about his life and work, with many more poems – I encourage you to pay it a visit – frederickturnerpoet.com. Stop by MethodTwoMadness while you’re at it to see all of the amazing art and posts by Kerfe and Nina!
