Poem of the Week
June 25, 2017 to July 2, 2017

Someone
by Dennis O'Driscoll

We never tire of reprising this poem, even though it was a sad occasion that led us to first present this poem by the late and much missed Dennis O'Driscoll. This poem's down-to-earth and clear-eyed wisdom, so emblematic of the poet, continues to comfort us.
