Happy day twelve!
This week’s featured poetess is Rita Dove. And the poem I’m sharing today is “Fox.” The poem had me with the beginning lines:
She knew what
she was and so
And then blew me away and smiling, with the last lines of the poem:
which was enough
which was more
than any man
You can read the full poem at the Poetry Foundation.
I tried to find a reciting of the poem by Rita Dove herself, alas I couldn’t.
