Six months after the loss of our friend and founder W.S. Merwin, we remember him on his birthday—September 30th.
As we at The Merwin Conservancy become custodians of the place he so loved, we honor W.S. Merwin’s exquisite attention to the natural world.
When you support us at this pivotal moment by making a gift of $100 or more by September 30, we will *send you a copy of The Moon Before Morning by W.S. Merwin.
We are grateful to W.S. Merwin’s publisher Copper Canyon Press for donating copies of this special poetry collection.
The Moon Before Morning (Copper Canyon Press, 2014) is a 124-page softcover collection of poetry that “answers the call set forth in his Pulitzer Prize–winning The Shadow of Sirius,” according to the publisher.
With The Moon Before Morning, “W.S. Merwin extends the emotional and intellectual reach of that collection with passionate reverence for the natural world, bittersweet reflection on time’s irrevocable ravages, and equanimity informed by a lifetime of writing and practiced contemplation / a love letter composed in a stunning rush of memory.”
This collection contains beloved poems such as “High Fronds”, “Beginners”, “Young Man Picking Flowers”, and “The New Song.”
With your gift, you can help The Merwin Conservancy at this historic time, and ensure that the land, home, and beloved palms are tended in perpetuity.
This offer expired on 9/30/19. Thank you for all who supported The Merwin Conservancy for W.S. Merwin’s birthday.
*Note: if your billing address is different from the address where you’d like the book shipped, please include shipping address in the “Comments” section of our donation form. Cost of shipping is included in the gift.
