    Along with Mary Oliver and Emily Dickinson, Wislawa Szymborska is one of my most treasured poets. Thank you for sharing this.


    • I was born in Krakow, Polan and lived there for over 30 years. That is where she lived as well. I saw her once after she received the Nobel prize. Nobody recognised her in the crowd, they did not know what genius was walking among them.

        I remember reading her fascinating Nobel speech where she talked about sitting on a “sofa while staring motionless at a wall”. That image of intensity has stuck with me. Always a pleasure to hear from you.
