Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by Gloria Powell
Dear Editor,

I recently received a sample of your magazine [December 2008] and was debating subscribing until I came upon the poem by Todd Boss titled “This Morning in a Morning Voice.” As a parent of four children (and grandparent of five) I could relate to that all-encompassing feeling of love for our children when they touch our hearts in their own unique ways. Boss said it all with his
superb poem!

Palmyra, Maine
