…within covers with pages of printed letters

I’m sharing a poem of Tomas Tranströmer today (translation: Robin Fulton). I’m checking a lot of poetry books lately, because I’m planning to publish my own book/poems Legs: A Global Perspective on Society (October).  Alone I have been walking for a long time on the frozen Ostergotland fields.  I have not seen a single person.
