Thank you, Scott, for taking the time to write a response. I am working on another piece now.
I hope you are well and staying safe.

Gail, I enjoy Robert Frost’s poetry; haven’t read that poem in a long time. Thanks for sharing it and your commentary….how relevant to our current challenges. Stay well.

Gail,
Finally I can “attend” a class of yours. Thanks so much. A class I take elsewhere has always conflicted with your Tuesday class at the Myerberg.

Gail,
Thank you so much for your reading and commentary. On walks together, though six-feet apart, we are joined by an invisible a ladder — not an invisible wall. Am looking forward to your next reading. Stay well.

Thank you, Gail, for doing this, for keeping us poetry lovers engaged. I am now subscribing to a “Poem-A-Day” website and am enjoying that as well, but it doesn’t have commentary which I appreciate that you do with your posts,

Hello, Everyone. Please note that the correct time for my class on “How Poetry Speaks to Us in a Time of Crisis” is 10:30-11:45 on Wednesdays, June 24, July 1, 8, and 15.
