Landon Godfrey sounds like she should be a poet, right? January 30, 2009

lgbird081210Why isn’t the art of poetry more valued in this country? I really can’t think of a more laudable profession, yet professional poets seem to be a vanishing breed these days. So it’s a delight to stumble upon one who is still plying the trade with diligence. Landon Godfrey is of that ilk. Just sample a few lines from her poem “Oklahoma:”

OKLAHOMA

Orange trumpet vine
plaits through scrub oak
and a chrome-green hummingbird
labors at each fount,
the two-way seduction
rare it seems to me.

You can read the rest of the poem here and learn more about Landon Godfrey’s glorious work here.
