Two weeks ago, I posted J. Patrick Lewis’ poem for the Peace Project, and last week, I posted mine. This week, to complete the trifecta of Peace Project Poems featured here, I share with you this fabulous poem by Arnold Adoff, whose award-winning work over the years has opened people’s eyes to injustice in a striking way.
The stanza beginning "the words contain the power" makes me want to stand up and shout/sing aloud! The forward motion of the words themselves makes me feel like I’m being swept away in an awesome storm of energy and joy.
Now, believe it or not, it’s STILL not to late to participate! The deadline for submitting poems, quotations, or short prose pieces has been extended to March 30! Click here for more info.
The Poetry Friday roundup today is at one of my very favorite blogs: Elaine Magliaro’s Wild Rose Reader.
