About this course:

In challenging times like these, we need poetry more than ever. This discussion group examines two exciting collections, The Best of Poetry: Thoughts That Breathe and Words That Burn and The Poetry of Impermanence, Mindfulness, and Joy. Both offer a cornucopia of delights, featuring the poetry of Whitman, Blake, Keats, Shakespeare, Frost, Dickinson, Donne, Yeats, Cummings, Basho, Collins and many others, celebrated and new. And every poem on the reading list is selected for its clarity, inspiration, insight and pleasure. Fear not!
