Lots of poems about the pandemic, and I don’t think I’m ready to revisit that time of my life yet.

I just got back from buying this (among many other books) at the bookstore and the moment I got home I sat down and read it. Each poem within this book is thoughtfully written and placed in such a way that I had to stop to reflect on each one.

I’m not the kind of person who generally reads poetry but this is a book perfect for people who do and don’t read poetry. This is a must read for everyone.

“So, on this beautiful morn, we mourn & we mend. 
Like light, we can’t be broken, even when we bend.”
I don’t know how she does it!!! Every word is beautiful and my copy is scattered with bookmarks on every other page. Ever since I heard Amanda Gorman’s inaugural poem, I wanted to see more of her poetry, and it was very much worth the wait.
