Ly Seppel

Books by this author: Shortening the Candle's Wick
  • About
  • Ly Seppel's poetry is characterized by a quiet tone and a focus on general human topics, the progression of time, the ability to capture fleeting but significant experiences, and on momentary pictures of everyday life. What really matters in her poetry is being a woman, mother, and daughter, as well as a bearer of nature's continuity.
