DPF / Angelou

More silence for Ms. Angelou, once silent for years, but now forever not. With all her words scattered near and far and everywhere translated in between, never ever silent forever. And, more here:

from Kin / by Maya Angelou b. 1928

I will remember silent walks in
Southern woods and long talks
In low voices

DPF / Moore

More on silence. Or, “Moore” on silence. No Marianne Moore yet?! Fathers and daughters: here’s a quote from her father, below. More/Moore here:

from Silence / by Marianne Moore b. 1887

“The deepest feeling always shows itself in silence;
not in silence, but restraint.”

DPF / Bang

Another American poet, another woman writing in the 1980’s. I have been to Spain, but my only earthquakes were in Los Angeles and one felt as far south as North County San Diego. http://www.poets.org/poet.php/prmPID/548

from The Earthquake She Slept Through / by Mary Jo Bang

She slept through the earthquake in Spain.
The day after was full of dead things.
