      Thanks, Harold! I love the poetry of Jane Kenyon, as well as the documentaries of Bill Moyers.

    What a great way to start the new year. I had not seen this program but have read many of their poems. I have at least one book of each of theirs….somewhere. To hear any poet read his own work is always affecting but even more so considering their relationship and trials. Thanks for sharing.
