Happy to see “Da Eye Wife / Woods Number 1” found a home this morning among the fine e-pages of Foxglove Journal. Thank you to Editor Elizabeth Gibson for including this work. The title, interestingly, is one borrowed from a Shooglenifty song. The poem could also be read as a companion to another poem I wrote in the fall titled, “Cèilidh for Angus” which will be published in both Wild Musette and Picaroon Poetry this spring.
And because it is April 1st, National Poetry Month, I’d like to encourage you to check out an array of poetry collections I’m currently perusing. Happy poetry!
