Here's a confession. I should be paying the college for the chance to teach poetry, not the other way around. It has been an excellent semester in a small class. I have learned a lot from the students, and for the first time, one of my books is on the syllabus (Places and Times).
Since we are approaching the final week, I am feeling a little wistful. Here is a video of an excellent poem read by one of my favorite poets. I use it also in my high school Mythology class.
My hope is that you have at least one thing in your life that gives you joy, as this class ( and other things) have done for me.
