Poems by Wendy Stern (1964 - 2015)
This website contains a selection of the poems written by Wendy during the last five years of her life. During that period poetry became
Wendy’s passion and her principal form of creativity and self-expression.
Being completely bedridden, Wendy composed her poems without the capacity to look at text, to write or to use a laptop. She would dictate the poems and then edit them aurally, a process that took an immense amount of energy and concentration.
The title chosen by Wendy for this website, Kshanti, means 'patient endurance'.
