Ursula K. Le Guin – A Poem From The Shelves

As many of you may know, well-known fantasy and science fiction author, Ursula K. Le Guin died last month.  The following poem, in homage to her, uses only titles of some of her works.

 

Very far away from anywhere else

Changing planes

City of illusions

Planet of exile

The unreal and the real

The dispossessed

Always coming home

 

Cat dreams

A ride on the red mare’s back

Catwings

The twins, the dream

Catwings return

A visit from Dr. Katz

Wild angels

 

Incredible good fortune

Gifts

Voices

Powers

Nine lives

The birthday of the world

The beginning place

 

A fisherman of the inland sea

The wind’s twelve quarters

The farthest shore

The other wind

Searoad

The eye of the heron

Fish soup
