Poems are like word blankets. They can wrap us up against the cold, harsh reality of life. When living with Hepatitis C and Cirrhosis, I often read the words of my favorite poets. They strengthen me. I hope you feel encouraged by them too. Some of my favorite Poems are by Mary Oliver, Dr. Seuss, Kerouac, Yeats, Dickinson, Frost, Wordsworth, Stevenson, and many others.
