  1. I love this. I’ve been sitting through all of your poem posts and loving them. I fall away from poetry sometimes, forgetting how it changes my outlook so much, So thank you for these. I started reading some out loud to my nine year old, too.


  2. Elissa, it makes me so happy that you’re reading some of the poems aloud to your nine year old – I remember my grandfather (who didn’t graduate high school) reciting poems aloud to us. And I’m glad that you love the poems. I’d be lost without poetry; it’s elemental.
