May meeting has come and gone...

after much a do (sp?) about location, we met at the lake last night.  a hearty discussion about the form sestina!  only one stab at writing one ended after the first stanza...but it was a try.  one of the all time greatest was read by Mary, the beautiful words of Elizabeth Bishop...title, Sestina (?).  the subject near and dear to those in attendance, this poem remains a favorite. we read sharon olds, ted kooser, and many others. 

tonight is poetry at the writers place sponsored by park university, this seasons final from the ethnic voices series. see you there.
