I am a new fan of Ruth Forman's poetry, especially "Poetry should ride the bus"
I really like how she uses simple language and the tone of her culture to convey strong images and a rich history. "Poetry should ride the bus" gave me a window into a life I am not a part of, sat me down, and made me feel at home.
Poetry is for people from all walks of life, and we can find poetry in all things.
If you would like to listen to Ruth Forman read one of her poems in her own voice - courtsey of NPR, visit this link.
I think we should put poetry on Bob, and literally - ride a poetry bus.
Here's hoping you find a little poetry in your day.
