I planted Sweet Rocket (hesperis) 25 years ago, and it has planted itself every year since. It is classified as an invasive plant, and thus shunned by responsible gardeners. I love it.
"Look, I tell them, it’s a long drop; you can’tjust jump feet first. You have touse your whole body."thank you for sharing this poem, Susan. i haven't forgotten (far from it)that i owe you a letter. i can't promise that it'll be in your mailbox by daybreak, but... i'm off to give it a shot.
I am completely blown away by this poem. Thank you. Fantastic.
I'm sure you have, many times.
Wow, that was very vivid. Was it really a dream?
Yes, it was really a dream. I changed nothing. I wrote it in 2002.Thank you, everyone. I brought this poem to a poetry reading on Sunday, and the response it generated moved me to post it here.
