Friday Poem

Art and Environment

June 2017 is a special centennial month.

Gwendolyn Brooks would have 100 years old. She was born June 7, 1917 Topeka KS. She died on the south side of Chicago, IL December 3, 2000.

Ms. Brooks is one of my favorite poets, very favorites. Today's poem is a short one she wrote about another poet, Robert Frost. He, too, is a favorite of mine.

It has occurred to me that there are too many poets I like to declare an absolute favorite. This may be viewed as laziness on my part but there are a passel of very fine poets.

Harriett Blog will be writing about her this month and here is the first entry about this gifted and hard-working poet. There will be a total of 8 contributors.

Happy Birthday Gwendolyn Brooks and thank you for your many presents to us. It is a treat to re-open them again and again.
