I first heard Sarah Leuze's poem "In Wildness" read aloud at this year's Mid-Winter Gathering of Friends for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Concerns. Read out loud in a powerful voice by someone who loved and loves her very much.
It blew me away. My breath caught. Tears came to my eyes. I knew right away this was the poem I'd been waiting for, for this year's on-line Brigid poetry festival.
I'm grateful to Robert for permission to reprint it here.
p.s. For a copy of Sarah Leuze: a collection of her poetry, fiction, and a memoir - with photos and biographical notes, please contact her estate, below.
