Poetry Sunday: Mary Swope


Mary Swope shares the poem, "Horseshoe Crab Molts."


Mary Swope —New Yorker by birth, Cape Codder by choice— has followed her love of language in poetry and song since childhood. She brought Revels to Washington, DC, still sings in choruses and choirs, and loves to swim in salt water. Her poems have appeared in a variety of publications, including The Book of Falmouth, Woods Hole Reflections and a chapbook, The House That Octopus. Word Poetry recently published Phosphorescence, a collection of poems written over a period of sixty years.
