Dear Don,

“Retreats” was meant as a word about the
“ice age.” But if you think it sounds like a
military word, I want to change it.

Thus, the enclosed. I do like the title better!

If you have any doubts about the grammar
of “Paul,” please let me know.

It’s off to school! I’m very glad
you like the poems!



Editorial note about this letter: The enclosed poem is “After the Ice,” in its published version.

Read After the Ice, as published.
