“Poetry is a life-cherishing force. For poems are not words, after all, but fires for the cold, ropes let down to the lost, something as necessary as bread in the pockets of the hungry. Yes indeed.”
― Mary Oliver
As Autumn turns toward Winter and we are called to a time for inner reflection, stillness and solitude, poetry longs to come with us as a companion in the darkness.
