Rest easy, W. S. Merwin, whose poetry and conservationism inspired our very first special exhibit. He passed away today at the age of 91. His spirit lives on in his words, poetry, and the very plants he loved and nurtured. May we take care of our plants in his honor. #WSMerwin American Writers Museum's photo on #WSMerwin

It seemed that, once every couple of years, W.S. Merwin (1927-2019) would write a poem that balanced perfectly on that tipping point of craft, voice, and lyrical transcendence. God, you will be missed. Even as you live forever. #WSMerwin One of the Lives https://t.co/FhT3pe0uZK

I try to be mindful of and grateful for those voices and souls that have meant the most to my own imagination. But when one of those writers dies, it makes it all the more pronounced. Good bye W.S. Merwin and thank you. @CopperCanyonPrs #wsmerwin #poetry https://t.co/mCclsRPTTH Michael Valliant's photo on #WSMerwin

@McMurtrieSF @thehighsign What a momentous person. What an effect he had. Honor, praise and gratitude. Now he can be an earth angel & guardian over the Hawaii he so loved. While Mary Oliver guards the waters of Cape Cod #wsmerwin

I hate to see such an exquisite poet pass from this world, the incomparable @WSMerwin. Here is his most well-known poem. His beautiful words are such an antidote to the cruelty, corruption and crassness that define the world these days. Rest in peace, precious spirit. #WSMerwin heyjudehopkins's photo on #WSMerwin

I’ve whined about this before, but I’d love a search mechanism for handwritten journals. (I have 42 years worth.) Trying to nail down when I saw W.S. Merwin read at the Walker, Minneapolis. 1980, most likely, when young and scuffling. Ah, #WSMerwin RIP

#WSMerwin has inspired me so much in the poetry of nature last year, and has prompted me to try to write in the sort of naturalism he so loved. Rest in peace.

Well, damn it. This one hurts. #WSMerwin was such an excellent poet. “To the Book” was a favorite poem of mine. I used to read him in The Atlantic Monthly when I was a teenager. This is a profound loss for us all. Damn.
