My Latest New Favorite Poet: Caroline Caddy

The latest of my new favorite poets is Caroline Caddy. I discovered her via the Poetry Foundation’s newsletter and the section titled Poems about Loneliness and Solitude.

Her poem in the section is titled “Solitude”, and it’s truly marvelous. It succeeds in doing what every good poem should; distilling a major idea into its essence in a few, miraculous words.

My favorite lines are:

“It has a quiet patina
that both absorbs and reflects
                      like a valuable instrument
                                       you have to sign for
– contract with alone –”

More info on this fine poet can be found in her Poetry Foundation bio, just click her name: Caroline Caddy

Enjoy! ;oD
