Can you please grant me permission to reprint a few stanzas of the poem you’ve written entitled, “Urban Gardens”? I am going to use the poem as epigraphs to my upcoming book of photos. I am planning to use stanzas five, six, and seven in their proper order, just like in its first publication in “Hughes Works”. The book I will be releasing is a photo essay of Gluckwoood’s urban beauty.

Your poem is an exact match to the tone I want. Each epigraph will be credited to you as “Bill Hughes, from ‘Urban Gardens'”. I would be deeply honored if you will approve the use of your poem. I will be sending you a signed copy of my book once it is finished. Enclosed is a self-addressed stamped envelope. Kindly sign and return a copy of this message to indicate your approval.
