A Ritual to Read to Each Other

The Writer's Almanac - NOVEMBER 1 - 7, 2004

The poem 'A Ritual to Read to Each Other'. This is the most wonderful thing that I can remember reading or hearing recited in a very long time.

A quote:


For it is important that awake people be awake,
or a breaking line may discourage them back to sleep;
the signals we give - yes or no, or maybe—
should be clear: the darkness around us is deep.

This just might be my favorite poem ever. Isn't it just lovely.
