The Sealey Challenge, Day 26: After the Point of No Return by David Wagoner

My friend Michele Bombardier, the Poet Laureate for Bainbridge Island and a Frustration of Poets colleague, knew Wagoner, and I now that I have read this book, I envy her that connection. As I mentioned in social media, I admire some Roethke, some Donald Justice, some Richard Wilbur. But the things I like in some of their poems appear in pretty much all of Wagoner's poems. This is an absolutely a new favorite.
