The Tenderness of Light

Ever since Mary McCallum’s lovely poem Bidding featured in our Summer poetry card I’ve kept an eye on her blog to see what she’s up to. After reading this entry I emailed Mary to see if I could purchase a copy of her precious book. And tonight when I walked in the door at 5.00pm, with the southern light fading, there wrapped ever so carefully was The Tenderness of Light. It’s beautifully printed, with a hand-sewn linen thread binding and inside a treasury of poems – a real work of art. I don’t know if there are many copies left so don’t muck about – if you want a copy make enquiries now!

15.03.12 –  tonight I received the following from Mary:

Dear Ruth, What a terrific poetry supporter you are – I feel grateful and privileged to have you on my team – the book looks lovely in your home, thank you. Wellington people can still pop into the Translucent Landscapes exhibition at 75 Ghuznee St, open daily 11-6, to see the book, otherwise ordering via my blog – which you’ve linked to – is just fine. Thanks again. In poetry, Mary
