For Kelly, With Love: Poems on the Abstracts of Carle Hessay (Treeline, 2014), edited by Maidie Hilmo, includes poems by bill bissett, Eve Joseph, Patrick Friesen, Linda Rogers, Patricia Young, Dorothy Field, Barbara Colebrook Peace, Carol Ann Sokoloff, Terence Young, and others. It celebrates Victoria poet Kelly Parsons, who was going to write poems on some Carle Hessay abstracts but was unable to because of pain medications before she died of breast cancer. In the book, each poem faces the relevant abstract, in colour, that inspired it.
