Some Poems Worth Your Time: "For What Binds Us." Jane Hirschfield
I've read--and taught--Jane Hirschfield's poetry--including the volume from which this poem is taken. I also had a chance to show her around West Point when she visited to address the cadets while I was teaching there. I'm glad to see that it is appreciated. Garrison Keillor's "Good Poems" book is a great source of accessible, worthwhile poems. This poem by Jane Hirschfield is that kind of poem.
