This woman's poetry helped save my life when I was young...many years ago. Looking for an extraordinary poem she wrote beginning with...I have sat down by the river with you in mind.... and ends with.....Now I accept you shadow I change you we are one I must enclose a darkness since I contain the sun. (or something like that) .

I am reading SOUTH OF MY DAYS, a bio on JW by Veronica Brady. I like the sincerity, warmth and humanity of her poems- she carried her messages across most impressively- without affectation or falsely elevated emotions- she was a poet of the people just as Wordsworth was- there's an echo of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson's I think. I shall be reading more poems of hers. I live in Melb- music and poetry are my passions
