For all who have not heard, the poetry community lost an incredible man yesterday.

His son writes, “It is with deep regret that I have to announce the sudden passing of my father Paul Lenzi. He was the cornerstone of our family and will be missed dearly.

  1. It feels so strange to have just discovered a great poet by the many posts from family poets. I have been reading his poems most of the day and have ordered two books from amazon. I do hope his family keep his blog open so we can read it in its entirety.

    1. Yes, I am in total agreement with you! I want to be able to read through his archives. I’m going to try and contact them and talk about it.
      Thanks so much for your sweet comments!


    1. Amen, to that, Dear Dorinda! I cannot tell you how happy I was to read your reblog of the notice from his site! Paul was a Friend, I shall deeply miss! I am so indebted to him for the seed of inspiration from his “NO ONE ELSE” for my “I ONLY HAVE MY WORDS”! What a great gift that was to me!

      Do you know if the family is going to keep his blog up on WP? I would love to talk to them about it? Do you know how to contact them? On Paul’s blog? Let me know if you can?


    1. I was the same way until I read Dorinda’s reblog of it! So very sad! His poem “NO ONE ELSE” provided the seed of inspiration for my “I ONLY HAVE ME WORDS”. I shall always be so indebted to him for that. He will be sorely missed!! I’m hoping his family will continue to keep his blog up on WP.
