A gift of Island poetry: Diane Morrow

Curated by Deirdre Kessler

LOON

The single lovely bird
in this sudden pond
beside the bike trail
startles.

fixes me
before it flies.

I pedal away
blessed to be
its only human witness.

—Dianne Morrow. What Really Happened Is This. Acorn Press, 2011.

RED Magazine # 15

This latest issue of RED says “so long” to two great stalwarts of PEI history. 

Father Francis Bolger might very well be regarded as the generating force of the great explosion of Island historical writing that has taken place over the past 50 years in this province.
