Please make a Memorial Gift to honor W.S. Merwin’s legacy
With profound sadness and abundant gratitude, we say goodbye W.S. Merwin, one of the greatest American poets, thinkers and ecologists of our time. He passed away peacefully in his beloved home on March 15, 2019, with the crowns of the palms he had planted over forty years just outside his window. If your life was touched by W.S. Merwin’s poetry, his garden, or his expression care for our world, please make a memorial gift in his honor. Your support at this moment is critical. It will ensure that William and Paula Merwin’s vision for The Merwin Conservancy finds its fullest expression.
