Reading: ‘When I come back, I will be grief’ by Sherry Marr


Today, Ingrid reads the second poem from The Anthropocene Hymnal, ‘When I come back, I will be grief,’ by Sherry Marr. It is a hugely emotive piece, and Sherry’s words feel more timely than ever:


‘When I come back, I will be grief,’ by Sherry Marr.

This is another poem felt to the core of being.

How can we stand idly by and do nothing as things gets rapidly worse?


The Anthropocene Hymnal is out now on Amazon!
All proceeds to WWF.

Sherry Marr

Sherry Marr has written since she was a child. She has been in love with the natural world all her life; it informs most of her poems, as does the climate crisis and the suffering of creatures in the non-human realm. She has been writing in the online poetry community since 2010. She lives in Clayoquot Sound on the West Coast of Canada. Many of her poems sing of its beauty.
