Linda Stitt

Rookie (Huntsville, Ontario, Canada)

Biography of Linda Stitt

My mother read poetry to me when I was in her womb and I emerged, I am told, in Huntsville, Ontario, crying in iambic pentameter. With the encouragement of my parents, I was composing verses as soon as I could talk.

I was educated in Georgetown and Toronto and lived for many years in Thunder Bay, where I began a process of what Carl Sagan described as 'matter coming to consciousness.'

The exploration continues even now that I have exceeded my shelf life and surpassed my best before date.

'In view of the fact that my work has been known,
on occasion, to rhyme,
I consider myself an anachronism
in my own time.'

For Jaredene

Who can I tell about you?
You were the one I told everything to
and even before I could say it, you knew.
Now who can I tell about you?

Friends don't come easy to me.
I know lots of people, but those I feel free
to confide in and open my heart to are few.
So who can I tell about you?
