I thought I’d have
the life grown out of love and loss
Ellen Grace Olinger
This poem was inspired by Susan Firer’s photos of Found Art by Lake Michigan in Milwaukee. Some of you have seen her art here before.
Susan knew my mother, Enola Borgh, when they were both teaching at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, years ago. I heard Susan read a few years ago, when she was Milwaukee’s Poet Laureate.
Please visit Susan Firer’s website for more information about her work.
