Your column made me read the poem anew, and tears came to my eyes.

Thank you, dearest. You are the best editor and a marvelous columnist!

The Toad herself (MvB)

Dear Laura, the posting of a single poem puts light around it in a way that somehow exceeds having one poem before it and one after. That you chose this poem is significant as it has all the elements of a masterwork, and hints of the magnitude of the book.


Can you let me know if Toad Hall Press is still in business?

I ordered a book on the website a few days ago and haven't heard anything back.
