Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect is hosting
this week's round-up of poetic goodness.
When we kicked off summer a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to share a favorite poem that combines summer and reading and parental love. I couldn't find it published anywhere on the internet, so I sent an email to the author, Rachel Hadas, asking for permission to share her poem "Moments of Summer" from the anthology Enduring Ties: Poems of Family Relationships edited by Grant Hardy. The author readily granted permission for me to share the poem. And here it is, with my wish that you might savor the sweet nourishment of reading with someone you love during summer's moments.
