Flowers For Socrates

Good Morning!

“What explains poetry is that life is hard
But better than the alternatives …”
 — Alicia Ostriker, from ‘Daffodils’

“I’m a great believer in poetry out
of the classroom, in public places,
on subways, trains, on cocktail
napkins. I’d rather have my poems
on the subway than around the
seminar table at an MFA program.”
— Billy Collins
