More Poetry for Peace, Reflection, and Inspiration
In light of the last two weeks--the probably-terminal-though-not-yet illness of my Cousin Monk and then the election results--I thought we needed some more poetry here. And I'm not the only one; poetry lists have recently appeared in Huffington Post, The Guardian, and Vox. So I've gathered some of those and some of my favorites (from my own lists here and here.) If you want others, check out Garrison Keillor's Good Poems for Hard Times or Kim Rosen and Eve Ensler's Saved by a Poem: The Transformative Power of Words.
Note: ARGHHHH! The formatting has gone all wonky, so that the poetry lines don't end in the right places. For clear copies, Google them. Otherwise, the idea is there.
