"My condolences to the Kumin family. Maxine Kumin's poetry speaks to me. She writes so simply and clearly about life and beyond. I bought a copy of her book "Where I Live" in Vermont (where I have a home) about two or three years ago. I do not read much poetry. After I read about her death, I read her book and enjoyed it immensely. Her poetry survives her and brings great comfort to many new readers."
