The Marsh Hawk Press community is sorry to learn of the passing of Harriet Zinnes. According to her family, she “died peacefully in her sleep Saturday morning. The whole family except her niece who lives in Singapore was there.  She was 5 months shy of 101. She left in peace, in her sleep, with very little suffering.  The night before she listened closely to her son playing the piano, and was able to discern that he needed to practice more (we all laughed, because she was so right), and we played a silly game at the dining room table after dinner.  On her way to bed she asked that we be sure her notebook was right next to her in case she awoke in the middle of the night to write a poem, a habit she’d had for years.”

Rest in Peace, Harriet.
