Mom's Gift

My mom says that her mom would recite snippets of poetry. I got the bug from my mom. Thanks, moms!.

In today's time-famine, it's easy to forget that we work in order to live, and not the reverse. Poetry seems a good antidote.

These are all poems I've had meaningful relationships with over many years. The comments are gleaned from those relationships.

I'm gradually moving a bunch of poets over from my old Web site to this one, plus adding some new ones.

Enjoy!
