Saved by Poetry: Essay at TweetSpeak Poetry

I came to poetry by way of music—the quarter, half, and whole notes I learned to "read" while taking piano lessons; by way of a retired Chilean banker who in 1971 won a Nobel prize but long before then filled my ears with his cantos and odes and loves poems; and by way of the death of my brother Patrick. . . .

My essay for the TweetSpeak Poetry column "Journey Into Poetry" appears today on the blog. Please join me and share your impressions.
