      Ruth Lilly, 87, heir to the pharmaceutical fortune, has
   given a bequest likely to be worth more than $100 million,
   to Poetry Magazine.  She submitted several poems in the 1970s
   and was rewarded only with handwritten rejection slips from
   the editor Joseph Parisi--evidently she did not take the
   rejections to heart

I do so hope that Poetry Magazine publishes one of her poems.  No matter how bad or mediocre, I should like to read one.

Regards,

Kate
