Read full description of the books Moon Crossing Bridge:I STOP WRITING THE POEM
to fold the clothes. No matter who lives
or who dies, I'm still a woman.
I'll always have plenty to do.
I bring the arms of his shirt
together. Nothing can stop
our tenderness. I'll get back
to the poem. I'll get back to being
a woman. But for now
there's a shirt, a giant shirt
in my hands, and somewhere a small girl
standing next to her mother
watching to see how it's done. p. 64
I have known of this poem for Gallagher for awhile. I had no idea, until I picked up this collection, that she had written it after her husband died. For me, there is added poignancy now to her words. I am not sure I would have any words if my husband had died.
This whole collection is wonderful. I had to read the poems slowly and over and over again, but that is me, not Gallagher. Her words are so carefully chosen and so beautiful.
April is National Poetry month. I should have gotten to more poetry, but time got away from me. At least I read these poems. If you haven't read Gallagher, I highly recommend her.
