Poet Laureate of Jamaica on This Blog!

Dear readers,

If you remember, a couple years ago, UM professor and poet Lorna Goodison was so generous as to contribute a poem to this blog. She is now the Poet Laureate of Jamaica, and the first female to hold that position.

I am so proud that she honored thewomenofletters.com with one of her poems, and in case you missed it the first time, here it is:

Thank you, Professor Goodison, and here’s to the future women poets of the Caribbean — and the world!
