Hortensia is gone


In memory of Hortensia Anderson of New York, a fellow poet who just passed away, from a silent admirer not only of her poetry but her tenacity to cling to life dealt to her... May you rest in peace!

Thank you for sharing this. I had no idea until just now that Hortensia had passed away. That's sad news. I did not know her in person, but am a fan of her work. A loss to the poetry world, that's for sure. Her "voice" will be missed.

Thank you very much! Yes, indeed, she will be missed. It just so happened that she shared the same malady as my late wife and of course I so admire her gut as well as her poems. Rest in peace Hortensia!
