the passing of Phyllis Walsh, poet, editor, small press publisher : on September 4, 2012

Early morning messages today from Ce Rosenow telling of the passing of our mutual friend and small press pal, Phyllis Walsh. Phyllis was a poet, located in that long tradition of Wisconsin wholeness, so no surprise she regularly and dutifully also issued from there her haiku journalHummingbird. I hold them all, thanks to Phyllis. ~ Bob Arnold at  A Longhouse Birdhouse

Phyllis Walsh, poet, writer, and small press publisher and editor of “Hummingbird” , has died. Ce Rosenow, poet, publisher, and president of the Haiku Society of America, has noted. 

Phyllis Walsh championed the small poem, the small press, the work of Lorine Niedecker, and so many poets, I was one.

I loved Phyllis Walsh, as poet, writer, and editor. Her journal Hummingbird  is already legend. Her short poems in the chapbooks Center Stillness (Scythe Press, 1989) and River (Hummingbird Press, 1993) are visitations, proximal, light seared. Also, a rare fineness is her understanding of Lorine Niedecker, in Walsh’s book on the poet, Lorine Niedecker: Solitary Plover (Juniper Press, 1992).

Rest in peace in your center stillness, Phyllis Walsh.  Donna Fleischer
