We lost a marvelous American Poet; a strong advocate for women and someone who’s words I’ve loved. And, yes, as Zen & Genki point out: Yes, Poetry Does Matter! Enjoy this lovely post.

It really does. Poetry matters.
Adrienne Rich mattered. To me. As a kid growing up and finding my voice, as a high school student, then a university student, a hardcore academic after that and even now, as a woman, a wife, a mother. Always as an English Lit. major, a writer, a poet at heart.
