While National Poetry month is technically over (sigh), I can't help share one more poem. Just one. One more reading. One more remembrance. One more fist pump to the power of words. Today I dedicate this poem to my mom. Lilacs remind me of her. I first heard poet laureate Kay Ryan read this a few years ago at the Library of Congress. I was delighted to find someone in Cleveland had recorded a similar reading. Happy Birthday, mom.
