if there is a river (Poetry Project, Day 19)

Can we just talk about Lucille Clifton for a minute? Sweet Jesus, that woman could write! Every single poem in this book (Blessing the Boats: New and Selected Poems, 1988-200) was phenomenal. I wanted to read every poem from this book out loud (and did read quite a few of them to my husband). If you aren’t familiar with her work, get thee to a library.

This one goes out to all the ladies.
