New to me
#1
Hi not been around for a long time, was recently reminded of my love for poetry with a discovery of a "new to me" poet.  
So despite my long absence it made me think of you guys and want to share my find.  But where to post it as is not a single poem or a discussion as such...so dumped it here.  (so if anyone has "discovered" a poet and wants to share a link why not dump it here...it might well be new to others as well).

My poet discovery was Una Marson.  
I was sent a article about her life via a friend who's father was a good friend of ours.  Una stayed with his father in London.  (read here: https://www.voice-online.co.uk/article/b...ARt69ClEBQ  )

I could not find a site with all her poems, but found a selection here: https://zocalopoets.com/2016/08/06/una-m...y-pioneer/

Hi Billy, always forget how much I love this site, just been taking my sweet time enjoying rowens "Daphne" def in dream territory. A treat to read when life is still shite. (so prob just a fleeting visit). It's been so long I've even changed my name...think I'll keep it, hey I could try out for press secretary at the white house.
Not sure I could say I loved Una's poetry, but think there is always something of interest and value in the poems of people who have been at important stages of history. Wondered if there was a thread to dump links to poets we have stumbled across...didn't find one so dropped it here. One of the things the site taught me as a newbie was to read and take all forms of poems (even those I did not get or like), so now I am always looking out for poets new to me.
