Letter from the Publisher

Welcome to Pine Row's Spring 2024 issue, and thank you for visiting. And Happy National Poetry Month!

We come round again to that time of thaw, of new starts, of old ghosts returning. It is a time of seeing things anew, as Ellen Stone notes in Ice Out, of recognition, of noticing "winter dissolving right before our eyes."

There's bravado in this issue, and terror, and a little bit of each in the other. In these poems, you will encounter a coming of age theme, which of course can happen at any age, and one such moment is poignantly captured by Allyson Wuerth in Flipping Through People Magazine.

Spring is another reason to be thankful. I am thankful for the contributing poets and their poems, for your readership, and for the sunshine in the trees today. To borrow the last line from Matthew Kohut's Forty Days, "I yield to mystery."

Thank you for your support and readership.

With spring wishes,

Hank Hudepohl
