Adrienne Rich: RIP

I've only just learned (at Bilgrimage) that poet Adrienne Rich has recently died. I first read about her in a post at Jesuit Rob Marsh's blog - 10 Years - in which he had an excerpt from her poem “Natural Resources” ....

My heart is moved by all I cannot save:
so much has been destroyed
I have to cast my lot with those
who age after age, perversely,
with no extraordinary power,
reconstitute the world.

I mention these line in my post on Oceans.

You can read more about her and read some of her poems at the Academy of American Poets
