Ruth Stone, a Poet Celebrated Late in Life, Dies at 96

Didn’t realize she’d grown that old, riding the Greyhound bus . . . . Her poems span generations — from Cheap: “I didn’t know I wasn’t free” and Illinois “Blue as a young pig’s eyes” and “the accordian pleated space” of As Now to Eden, Then and Now. She lost her eyesight eventually, never her vision, her ability to scrape surfaces down to rot or gemstone. We are so fortunate she lived and wrote this long. ~ yours truly, df
