Head on over to Jama’s Alphabet Soup for the Poetry Friday round-up.
So today, I promise a Carole Boston Weatherford poem. It hasn’t arrived. This morning however, I read a post at The Nerdy Book Club and the poem Ruth Ayres resonated with me:
It is difficult
to get the news from poems,
yet men die miserably every day
of what is found there.
—William Carlos Williams
Ruth Ayres has a new book, Celebrating authors. She talks about it at The Nerdy Book Club.

I’ve always loved those words by William Carlos Williams. 🙂
The quote is a favorite of mine, Jone. I always think of the British WWI poets when I read it. Their work may have helped some soldiers somewhere? Thanks-Ruth’s book is awesome!
I read the picture book biography of WCW: “A River of Words” by Jen Bryant and Melissa Sweet – have you read that one yet? So beautiful.
Yes, I love that biography.
