Happy World Poetry Day
Today, March 21st, 2011, is World Poetry Day. Celebrate by reading poetry from a country other than your own. The world is both small and vast, offering kinship and surprise in humbling variety.
My suggestions for the day:
- Herta Muller
- Simin Behbahani Alireza Tarighian
- Pablo Neruda
I would welcome your suggestions.
