  1. If you ever make a print of this piece, please let me know. Deeply moving. What a tribute (expansion?) for the poem. Both are … extraordinary.

    1. Thank you! I will definitely let you know – there are a few pieces I have considered printing – and this is one of them. It was an illustration I had struggled with for a few weeks, so when it finally came together I was thrilled!
