Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Birthday…

The sky is grey and ribbons of cloud are wrapped around chimneys. My spine is cold. A voice drones in the background as the news bulletin tumbles from the radio. The clock is ticking. Clouds uncurl, unfurl… Today was Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s birthday. Is poetry any less important today? Not to me. I think of my ancestors exchanging gifts of poetry and my heart feels warm.
