Poetry Readings in the Boston Area for January and February 2015

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but
expanding your poetic horizons
feeding the soul with beauty
connecting with your ancestors by gathering together in the warmth to hear the older sister of song
the poetry’s so delightful.

Revision is the mother of skill.
