When I was talking about poets before, I forgot, for some reason, to include Donald Hall, who has been one of the most influential writers, for me.

Here is a poem from his book 'Without,' which is about his wife, the poet Jane Kenyon, and her long battle with leukemia and subsequent death. Read it slowly. It's worth savoring.

If you're further interested in Mr. Hall (and you should be!), here's an excellent article about him and Jane Kenyon.
