An American poet

Another new poetry recommendation

This recommendation again comes from Poetry on Loan member Nickie, who has a findness for Jane Hirshfield's poems. Jane Hirshield transforms the everyday into radiant thoughts; if you grow to like her poems you'll want to read them again and again. You can easily find some examples online. Nickie particularly wants to recommend Hope and love; she especially likes the lines

hope is the hardest
love we carry

...as releavnt to the current times. As a permanent optimist, I don't agree with this thought, but the poem as a whole is lovely.
