Constance Vogel's poetry has been published in over 150 journals.
Her newest book, The Mulberry, is written in memory of her daughter, Mary.
Praise for The Mulberry
Like captured fireflies, these poems flicker in grief's darkness. Writing about the
particular pain of losing a child, Constance Vogel finds that nature,
with its lightning-struck mulberry tree, bat caves, and whales, mirrors
her vulnerability. The language--ironic and incantatory--soars with the
desperation of the mother bat in 'The Cave.' She finds an exit, but no release.

Editor of River Oak Review
These poems--beautiful for the clarity of imagery--will leave you changed as you walk
with a mother whose world has come undone. The poet wastes no words. Fearless, she
challenges death whose sting is only temporary. These are poems of great mourning,
leading to a trusting joy at dawn. These poems acknowledge the fragility of life
even as they celebrate the eduring love which binds mother and daughter to all
that is precious and alive.
