February 4, 1983

Dear Don,

“Great Day in the Cow’s House” is a beautiful
poem—lovely and full and visionary.

What dimension that paragraph 5 gives
the poem!

It is one of your best, I think. Reading
it has made my day.


A note from McNair about this letter:  I discovered this poem in the American Poetry Review for January/February, 1983.
