February 29, 1980

Dear Don,

Just in case I didn’t make this clear
on the hastily written postcard I sent
you today – I would very much like Joey
to have “Old Trees.” And neither of you
need worry about my sending poems to
Danbury that have been sent elsewhere,
since I will not be sending poems elsewhere.

I am just delighted that you like the
poem. I wish I had more to send.
And the fact is, I do have lots of
stuff in the notebooks, but none of it is
ready yet.

Anyway, I keep working and hoping.
In the meantime, thanks for your
comments about “Old Trees,” and for
your interest in suggesting it to Joey.
