Amy King does "the count"

There are, of course, many ways other than male/female that recognized authorship can be tallied. Still, fodder for spring meditation....http://willaweb.org/thecount.shtml

Fresh, for Spring -- Marie Ponsot

The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer recently featured Marie Ponsot.  She says 70 is good, but 80 is better--for a dose of good spring energy and some samples of her tight, bright poems, go here:  http://knopf.knopfdoubleday.com/2009/12/01/marie-ponsot-on-the-newshour-with-jim-lehrer/.

This sample was distributed by Knopf as part of their Poetry Month 'Poem-A-Day' emails. Delightful. To sign up for that, go here:  http://poem-a-day.knopfdoubleday.com/?ref=poemaday_poetrynl.
