Richard Wilbur, RIP


    America's second Poet Laureate, Richard Wilbur, has died. He twice won the Pulitzer Prize. The obit below shows his interesting background and gives a glimpse of his fine poetry. Although I have read some of it, now I want to read more. I had not known that he was a combat veteran of World War II.
