Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Edwin Morgan, the Scots Makar, has died. This is our lead story, with links to articles from the Guardian, BBC News, and The Herald. There is also a link there into our Poetic Obituaries, where you will find more links to articles from the Telegraph, Scotsman, Herald, and Deadline Scotman. These are the select articles, chosen to bring to you a full view of his life from differing perspectives. Once you scroll into the Poetic Obituaries, there are more deaths of poets and critics of note. This is a very obituary-oriented week for poetry, Edwin Morgan leading the way.

Also in News at Eleven, we look at Patience Worth, who purportedly dictated her poetry through Pearl Lenore Curran. We look at secret language, and at two remarkable women who have had to deal with the brutal politics around them, Joumana Haddad and Khet Mar.

Be sure to check into Great Regulars as well. Fatima Bhutto is trying to speak to the world while her country deals with a horrific flood. Also in that section, Frank Wilson chimes in with his wisdom, poetry and a review. There is much more in that section as well as the others. It''s an important week in the news on poets and poetry.

Adding to this remarkable week, the InterBoard Poetry Community''s Poem of the Year results are in, with special thanks to Dana Goodyear (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/dana-goodyear), for her three selection, her commentary (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poty-may-2009-apr-2010), and her generosity. Here are the winning poems, the best of the best of 2009-10:

Ouija, by Lois P. Jones, from the poetry board Penshells: http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/ouija
Eureka Springs, by Jude Goodwin, from the poetry board The Waters: http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/eureka-springs
Eden in Winter, by Russel Smith, from the poetry board The Write Idea: http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/eden-in-winter
