Poetry, poets, dead ones, dying ones, deathly ones. Spy corner has demonstrated that there is more than a passing interest among deathlisters in poetry and poets as TF suggested some time ago.
Stanley Kunitz is one among many. Who will be next? Louis Simpson? Gunter Grass, the SS poet? Lawrence Ferlinghetti?
A thread for favourite poems, discourse on all things poetic and, of course, poets who are potential deathlist material. Ernesto Cardenal, Henri Chopin, Robert Creeley, Hans Enzensberger, Tuli Kupferberg, Noel Edmonds: names you are not likely to find in the Big Brother House.
Dedicated to Emily Dickinson, the matriarch of deathly verse.
If you wait long enough it will happen after six years Louis Simpson has died aged 89. He won the 1964 Pulitzer Prize.

Here's one of his own meditations on death.
The Village Grave Yard
The fallen leaves are red and dry.
Autumn burns. The still lake mirrors
a blue October sky.
In the cemetery the forgiven and unforgiven
lie side by side.
Hoarfrost on the goldenrod.
On the northern mountains new-fallen snow.
Time like a kindly god
reserves some open spaces in each row
for the living dead.
How long do we have who follow the sky?
Beneath the rustling maple leaves
in a green plot eleven by five
these ashy bones compact our fond belief
that the sun won’t die.
—F. D. Reeve
Things fall apart, it's scientific.

Sad time for the family with Margaret going last week.
That's a shame. I saw Heaney a few times at Poetry International. Good poet; a good man too.

I knew he was a goner, but I didn't go for him because I A) didn't want to drop any of my current picks and he's only worth 7 points.
