For our 3rd Wednesday poem of the week we go back to 2015 and this jewel by our own associate editor, Marilyn Taylor. It has since had reprints in Poetry Magazine and at American Life in Poetry.
Here is 3rd Wednesday’s poem of the week from the Winter Issue. In his cover letter David wrote: “I’m happy to see print magazines continue in the digital age, as I prefer to hold my reading matter in my hands than to look at a screen! I write because doing so hasn’t lost its meaning to me, and because I feel I’m in good company among (most) others who write.“
Third Wednesday’s Poem of the Week is from the Winter 2020 issue which just went into the mail to subscribers and contributors. It’s available in print at Amazon and you can read it for free online by clicking Free Issues at our website.
Larry Levy’s poem first appeared in 3rd Wednesday and later in The Orchard Poetry Review. It’s been nominated by Orchard for a Pushcart Prize.
