JG Whittier of Merrimack Valley in Guardian (UK)

Ezra Pound said something like “poetry is news that stays news.” John Greenleaf Whittier made Poem of the Week in The Guardian of the UK with his “Telling the Bees.” The commentary is as interesting as the poem. Read it here–thanks to Rus Bowden on Facebook for the link.

Makes me think of all those Merrimack Valley writers in the new “River Muse” anthology and how their work will go on and on and on now that it has been published.
