BILL MOYERS: Eight years ago, recovering from heart surgery I found deep comfort in poetry, especially the poems of Naomi Shihab Nye. Her poems speak of ordinary things things we take for granted until it's almost too late. In her new book, 19 VARIETIES OF GAZELLE those are again her subject. Even when war, politics and terrorism put them in jeopardy. Naomi Shihab Nye, is an American, an Arab, a Poet, a parent, a woman of Texas, a woman of ideas. The daughter of a Palestinian father and an American mother, she's lived in old Jerusalem, in St. Louis, and now with her own family in San Antonio, Texas. We first met at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival in New Jersey eight years ago where we talked about the power of the word.

San Antonio's most celebrated poetess, Naomi Shihab Nye, lives in a house on S. Main Street, which borders the western edge of the King William Neighborhood. She was selected by Texas Monthly Magazine as one of the "20 most impressive, intriguing and influential Texans" for 1998. Recently, her poetry has attracted the attention of Bill Moyers, whose PBS segment on living American poets featured Nye reading some of her poems. In 2002 Moyers interviewed her on his PBS program NOW and had her read his favorite poem of hers, "The Art of Disappearing." Nye was also interviewed at length by Rachel Barenblatt for PifMagazine . Helpful discussions of Naomi Nye's biography and work (including additional links) are available at The Academy of American AmericanPoets , and at Voices from the Gaps The 2003 edition of The Bedford Anthology of World Literature included three of Nye's poems, with the introductory comment that, "In her writing she draws on the voices of the Mexican Americans who live near her as well as on the perspectives of Arab Americans like herself and the ideas and practices of the different subcultures in America" (Book 6, 1386). The three specific poems selected by the

who suffered the most.
I'm interested in
people getting over it."
Naomi Shihab Nye (b. 1952), U.S. poet. "Jerusalem," lines 1-4 (1994). "I can never see fashion models,
lean angular cheeks, strutting hips
and blooming hair, without thinking of the skulls at the catacombs in Lima, Peru." Naomi Shihab Nye (b. 1952), U.S. poet. "Morning Paper, Society Page," lines 1-4 (1994). Comments about Naomi Shihab Nye Click here to write your comments about Naomi Shihab Nye Megan M (5/20/2006 9:06:00 PM) I would like to point out some flaws in the previous commenter's reaction to Naomi Shihab Nye's 'To Any Would-Be Terrorists'. The numbers in [] will follow the comment with my thoughts. Ms Nye is sad to have to call the 9/11 murderers'terrorists'? Why? A poet lives to name things and name them truthfully. Is Ms. Nye in poetry or public realations? Don't be afraid to call things by name - terrorist murderers: that is what they were.[1] She claims 'they [The terrorists] wounded a huge community of people in the Middle East, in the United States and all over the world.' Maybe, maybe not; there was plenty of rejoicing throughout the middle east on 9/11. No, the terrorists - as Ms Nye wrote 'kill[ed] thousands of innocent, international people in those buildings and scar[ed] their families forever.' Now what were you saying about wounds? [2]

Virginia Duncan Naomi Shihab Nye and Virginia Duncan have worked together since 1989. They have collaborated on twelve books, including the poetry anthologies This Same Sky: Poems from Around the World The Tree is Older Than You Are: Poems and Paintings from Mexico , and What Have You Lost; the novel Habibi ; the picture books Sitti's Secrets (illustrated by Nancy Carpenter) and Come with Me: Poems for a Journey (illustrated by Dan Yaccarino); and the poetry collection 19 Varieties of Gazelle: Poems of the Middle East. Naomi is currently writing (and Virginia is currently editing) a novel called Florrie Will Do It , a picture book called Baby Radar (illustrated by Nancy Carpenter), and an anthology called Is This Forever, Or What?: Poems and Paintings from Texas. Naomi : Virginia, some seventh graders were asking me how we work together. I told them that at this moment I am anxiously awaiting your textual comments on a third-draft manuscript of a novel, rather like the notes their teachers might write in the margins of their papers. (Their eyebrows went up when I said this.) When the manuscript with your well-written notes arrives (and I do truly love your handwriting), I will read ALL of them, and think about them for a few days. I will eat buckwheat pancakes for energy. Then I will begin the fourth draft of the book, incorporating as many of your suggestions as possible.

    Naomi Shihab Nye: 19 Varieties Of Gazelle

    Robert Archambeau
    recently noted that far too few poets criticize each other authentically This work attracted me in part, perhaps subconsciously, due to the recent strife in the Middle East, and my desire to come to terms with it. More consciously, I was attracted to the work because I am searching for larger themes in my own work. I feel I have learned how to say things well, and am now looking for what to say. Or, more importantly, how to say the thing that matters that might already be lodged somewhere inside me in such a way that I can be proud of it.
    In her introduction, Naomi makes it clear that this work is a response to the September 11th attacks, which prompted in her a deep, almost haunting, desire to represent her Arabic people in a more accurate light than that cast by mainstream media.

    Naomi Shihab Nye Years ago a girl handed me a note as I was leaving her proud town of Albany, Texas, a tiny, lovely place far in the west of our big state."I'm glad to know there is another poemist in the world," the note said. "Ialways knew we would find one another someday and our lights would cross." Our lights would cross. That girl had not stood out to me, I realized,among the other upturned, interested faces in the classroom. How many otherlights had I missed? I carried her smudged note for thousands of miles. I was fascinated with the earliest poems I read and heard that gave insightinto all the secret territories of the human spirit, our relationships with oneanother. Somehow those glimpses felt comforting, like looking through the litwindows of other people's homes at dusk, before they closed the curtains. Howdid other people live their lives? Just a sense of so many otherworlds out there, beginning with the next house on my own street, gave me agreat energy. How could anyone ever feel lonely? One of the first books Iloved in my life was a thick, gray anthology edited by Helen Ferris, called

    Valentine for Ernest Mann
    by Naomi Shihab Nye You can't order a poem like you order a taco.
    Walk up to the counter, say, "I'll take two"
    and expect it to be handed back to you
    on a shiny plate. Still, I like your spirit.
    Anyone who says, "Here's my address,
    write me a poem," deserves something in reply.
    So I'll tell you a secret instead:
    poems hide. In the bottoms of our shoes,
    they are sleeping. They are the shadows
    drifting across our ceilings the moment before we wake up. What we have to do is live in a way that lets us find them. Once I knew a man who gave his wife two skunks for a valentine. He couldn't understand why she was crying. "I thought they had such beautiful eyes." And he was serious. He was a serious man who lived in a serious way. Nothing was ugly just because the world said so. He really liked those skunks. So, he re-invented them as valentines and they became beautiful. At least, to him. And the poems that had been hiding in the eyes of skunks for centuries crawled out and curled up at his feet.

    • Introduction
      Naomi Shihab Nye's poem "Kindness" appears in her first collection of poems, Different Ways to Pray , published in 1980. The tone, themes, and ideas presented in this inaugural volume establish Nye's core message as a poet and as a human being: All of humanity is worthy of respect, deserving of consideration, and in need of kindness. "Kindness" is reprinted in Nye's 1995 collection Words under the Words , which compiles selections from her first three books: Different Ways to Pray, Hugging the Jukebox (1982), and Yellow Glove The poet's many travels have taken her to some of the world's most prosperous countries and thriving cities as well as to some of the harshest and poorest lands, where violence, hunger, and injustice are common. One such place is Colombia, a country in northwestern South America. In Colombia, the natural beauty of a lush landscape with mountains and rivers is sometimes overshadowed by the ugliness of social oppression, government corruption, drug trafficking, and violent crime. Somewhere within this ironic blend of nature's magnificence and society's decadence, Nye finds a reason to believe in the power of simple acts of kindness. This belief is the inspiration for her poem of the same name, which signs off with the single word "
