Last week, I wrote about the authenticity of a speaker in a poem. This week, I want to bring you a poem whose speaker rings true. This poem builds community, and as Stephen Dobyns writes, “take[s] us out of our isolation by showing us the commonality of our feelings.”
Ada Limón’s poetry is just lovely. Her words never fail to move me. She never fails me with her poetry. I’m thankful for this poem.
No. I believe in this connection we all haveto nature, to each other, to the universe.
