  1. Is this about Judee Sill? Either way, it is really beautiful, most especially the line, “Her voice climbed branches…” My husband and I discovered her music only three years ago. A friend gave us a compilation of recordings and we listened to it over and over again. Such a gorgeous voice. And such a tragic loss. I miss the “unsung music” too.

  2. I don’t know Judee Sill – I’m going to have to go listen to her, based on this. The whole poem is beautiful, but I absolutely love the last stanza. Wonderful image.

  3. You’ve introduced a lot of us to Judee with this beautiful poem. I, too, am off to find her. My favorite stanza was the second one, I love the image of “our own souls singing forgotten songs.”

  4. so much poetry on the grid this week! Does my soul good. The last two lines here could be applied to so many people the world has lost lately. I don’t know Judee Sill, but your words evoked how I felt when I found out Jeff Buckley passed. I must know go listen to Judee and Jeff now.
