    Mary Kay,

    Your Persimmon Tree poem, Names for Green, is exquisite! Your talent for description and all-the-right-words-in-all-the-right-places is delightful…I still remember the poems you shared at our St. John’s writing week. I hope you’re well and enjoying Spring at last!

    Dear Mary Kay

    A beautiful poem that makes me want to go outside and breathe in all of the green you described.
