My friend Paula has just started a lovely blog Random Reading with some thoughts on poetry, which inspired me to send her the heartbreaking poem by Donald Hall "Names of Horses" and a recommendation for poems by Jane Kenyon starting with "Otherwise" (from the book Otherwise). In addition, I have greatly enjoyed Hall's nature memoir Seasons at Eagle Pond about their rural life in New Hampshire. Here's a great resource to start off with Hall and Kenyon. I had forgotten that Hall was poet laureate, but I knew of Kenyon's translations of Anna Ahkmatova's work.
