"A woman who writes feels too much,
those trances and portents!
As if cycles and children and islands
weren't enough; as if mourners and gossips
and vegetables were never enough.
She thinks she can warn the stars.
A writer is essentially a spy.
Dear love, I am that girl."

--Anne Sexton, from "The Black Art"

This is fantastic! I have read the poem "daddy" numerous times,and it's so lovely to hear how Plath intended the poem to read.
