"Poetry has never let me down. Without poetry, I would have found life less comprehensible, less bearable and infinitely less enjoyable."
— Josephine Hart
Irish Novelist, Writer
1942 - 2011
Reading is a habit that many of us cultivated at a very young age. And most of us would admit that reading has helped us through some difficult times in our lives. What do you read? Poetry? Novels? Biographies? History? Memoirs? Reading has brought me much comfort during my life. Without reading I would have been a much different person. Reading has opened my heart and shown me many worlds. I remember once while I was in college of going to a restaurant late at night and reading poetry aloud for the shocked customers.
Read aloud one of your favorite poems for family and friends to hear.
