At this time of year, we take stock; we give thanks for all that sustains us.

You sustain me.  You have my deepest gratitude.

 




THANKSGIVING, 2014



There were no meadows near, but still I knew
myself to be a part of meadows, their dirt was in my hair,
 no matter where they were I did not have to be separate from them,
their open-ness, their vastness, their big-heartedness
were all mine.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
NOTEBOOKS FROM MYSTERY SCHOOL by Margaret McCarthy
Poetry Chapbook; 24 pages

A coming of age journey told through poems; our rites of passage, with nature as our greatest school.
A journey through shadow and light, arriving at the ultimate destination: the balance of opposites.

 “…you yearn to follow into the labyrinthine mystic depths of these luxurious poems.”
--Richard Peabody, editor Gargoyle Magazine

“McCarthy’s photographic eye captures the remarkable beauty and resilience that carry us through the sorrows
and mysteries of our days.”

 —Michele Wolf, author of Immersion and Conversations During Sleep

 “With the eye of a feminist, she asks what if, instead, it had been Icarus's sister? Would she know
how far to go?
In her first collection, NOTEBOOKS FROM MYSTERY SCHOOL, McCarthy shows
us that yes, she knows.”

- Susana H. Case, author of 4 Rms w Vu
