I’ve always loved reading letters written by poets and storytellers. So, when I noticed that The Letters of Anne Gilchrist and Walt Whitman—where the latter declines a marriage proposal by the former—are free for our reading pleasure, I had to share the finding with you. I haven’t finished the book yet, but the bits I’ve delighted in are delicious.
Today, and every Sunday after this, Poets United is open to both poetry and prose (stories, articles, essays, letters…). Entries can be old or new, the choice is yours (if you choose to share prose, your contribution should be in 369 words or fewer).

Glimpse into the past and future:
Last Monday - a Farewell to Mary and Sherry.
Last Friday - Rosemary provoked our thoughts with Jasmine Logan’s “Imagination”.
Next Wednesday’s Midweek Motif - Susan invites us to explore “Authenticity”.
Please, add your old or new or upcycled entry to Mr. Linky. Enjoy other participants’ words. And have the most delightful of Sundays.
