    I have met this poet and she is an inspiration to me. Looking forward to future books... I bought her book at Burlingham Books in Perry, NY, when Joan Murray blessed us with her company this spring. I enjoyed the two she shares here on this site.

It's mid-September, and in the Magic Wing Butterfly Conservancy
in Deerfield, Massachusetts, the woman at the register
is ringing up the items of a small girl and her mother.
There are pencils and postcards and a paperweight--
all with butterflies--and, chilly but alive,
three monarch caterpillars--in small white boxes
with cellophane tops, and holes punched in their sides.
