Poetry can give voice to deeply held feelings and beliefs we may not know we possess until the poem names them for us. Many recognized poets have helped us reach undiscovered corners of our souls and served as valued companions on our journey with God. We will read from Wendell Berry, Thomas Merton, Mary Oliver, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and others. Bring your own treasured poems to share with the group. Socrates believed beauty is a thing that “slips in and permeates our souls.” It is our hope that the beauty of these poems will touch your soul as well.
