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
