The PBS NewsHour’s “weekly poem” on their Art Beat blog is a favorite of mine. And Charles Wright’s recitation while sitting in his study during the depth of winter resonates deep within. And, although the reading is nice, seeing the poem laid out on the page truly brings the poem to life.

Charles Wright talking about and reading his poetry might make a great program.
