My poetry refers to the past and the present almost simultaneously.
Author: Mary Shay McGuire
Mary Shay McGuire was introduced to poetry in grammar school when she was given a book of poetry by famous poets. Poetry has been with her since then and the gift was the impetus for her beginning to write poetry. She graduated from Newton College of the Sacred Heart - now part of Boston College - and then studied in Paris. Later she graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with an MFA in Writing Poetry. Poetry, she says, is our saving grace.
