Nancy Willard Comments (3)

the a poem that i wanted didn't show up: (
I was saddened to learn of Nancy Willard's death in February of this year. Her award-winning book, A Visit to William Blake's Inn was read many, many times as my children were growing up. My son is now 39 and he and his wife, Brandy are celebrating the birth of their first child, Amelia Rose. We all agreed that Amelia Rose needed her very own copy of A Visit to William Blake's Inn. Many more years of lyrical, magical poetry ahead. I hope this message might reach her family so they know what a precious gift Nancy Willard was to children and families everywhere. Karen Blase
Highly lyrical, whimsical interpretation. Original ideas, with vague, tho evocative sly sub texts I shall re-revisit Ms. Willard with keen expectations!
