On The Way Down

One of my all-time favorite poets is Amy Lowell. They called her an “Imagist Missionary” since she was one of the first to use imagery, and she used it masterfully. If I didn’t know this was written by River, I would think this poem was hers. She captivated me when I was a child-woman. Now I’m a grandmother and this kind of language and skill still make my blood sing.
