April is national poetry month. Of course this writer has to oblige with a post dedicated to poetry. The poem I chose is one that has been close to me for many years. Christina Rosetti’s work helped me through a difficult mourning period, that I was certain was never going to end. Some days, I still believe the passing of my loved one has forever left a shadow on my world. But, that is the way of death. Poetry, I believe, is made of the shadows and lights that most affect us. That is its power.
Thank you for listening and let me know in the comments what poems have moved you.
