Jay Amberg My personal favorite changes from month to month, year to year. But tonight the one that speaks most deeply to me is “August from My Desk” by Roland Flint.

I go back to different poems depending on how I feel at a given time, but I always return to Margaret Atwood’s “Variation on the Word Sleep” and to the second part of James Wright’s “Two Hangovers”. I'm invariably taken by the final eight lines of Robert Frost’s “Birches” and the last six lines of Tennyson’s “Ulysses”.
