Poetry

“People are hungry for truth, wisdom and beauty to help them cope with the challenges of being human, and poetry offers exactly that. A poem written by a stranger who was born 200 years ago, or 20 years ago, can articulate in a short space the promptings of our own private hearts.” —Angela Alaimo O'Donnell, author of Andalusian Hours and Love in the Time of Coronavirus
