My Poetry Friday offering for today comes from a collection entitled, Ink Knows No Borders: Poems of the Immigrant and Refugee Experience. This collection includes 64 poems written by poets from all over the world. They share the experiences and struggles of immigrants and refugees, which are relevant to this day and age.
Thank you to Elizabeth Steinglass for hosting Poetry Friday this week!
Another important poem from this collection that you should check out is Brian Bilston’s Refugees, which you can read online courtesy of National Poetry Day.
Oh, my….how gorgeous and true. And, considering today….sad. Thank you for sharing. I need this book.
Very touching, Fats. What an ending! Thanks for sharing it.
