From the Editor:
With this issue, the quarterly Songs of Eretz Poetry E-zine will be phased out in favor of the (nearly) daily Poetry Review and yearly Poetry Award Contest. This transitional issue of the e-zine has been published in the format of the Review--each poem featured has its own, unique, searchable posting.
The e-zine archive has been removed from the site, but for those readers who enjoy perusing back issues, have no fear--most of the poems that have appeared in past issues of the e-zine will be (or have been) reprinted in the Review with the permission of the authors. Loyal readers and contributors should not hesitate to contact me at SWGordonMD@gmail.com regarding any poems from past issues of the e-zine that cannot be found in the Review.
My heartfelt thanks goes out to the poets who contributed their work to the e-zine. Without them, these past two years of poetry and beauty would not have been possible. I hope to hear more from them, as well as from new voices, as the Review and Contest continue the rich tradition and unique mission of Songs of Eretz.
When I finally reach the summit.
Steven Wittenberg Gordon, MD
