Poems By Heart with Carol Conroy

In the words of Carol Conroy, the memorization of a poem invokes "all the myriad acts of attention that create a poem. For that reason, memorization ranks as a profound cognitive, psychic and spiritual journey." Poems by Heart invites people to share that journey by reciting from memory the poems that they love. Each month participants memorize a new poem that someone else has written.
