Suppose I say summer,
write the word “hummingbird,”
put it in an envelope,
take it down the hill
to the box. When you open
my letter you will recall
those days and how much,
just how much, I love you.
You know, until yesterday I didn’t even know Carver had also written poetry. Now I’m thinking that I really, really ought to read it. I think I like this even more than the previous one.
It’s a great book. It’s called “All of Us”.
I am so happy you are sharing some of Raymond Carver’s poetry. I’ve loved it for a long time. My favorite poem of his is “Locking Yourself Out, Then Trying To Get Back In.”
I actually think this, or something like it, would be a wonderful thing to do in reality. Sure would brighten up the mailbox and it’s always so nice to get something other than bills and flyers.
