Richard Wilbur on today's Writer's Almanac

I'm a daily listener of The Writer's Almanac, a great daily radio feature and podcast from American Public Media. This is where I learn about writers born on that day, and often learn a little more about the lives and work of people whose names I know but whose work I don't know. And there's a poem read every day, not all of which are to my taste, but I'm always a great fan of more poetry anywhere. Today the program included "Blackberries for Amelia," a poem from one of America's great living poets, Richard Wilbur. I had the great pleasure of speaking with Mr. Wilbur recently and I'm very excited to hear him read tomorrow night at the Sunken Garden Poetry Festival in Farmington.
