Angela Meady, Children and Youth Services Librarian at Waverley, chose a German-born American writer:

I found it hard to decide what to share because poetry choices are so personal but my mind kept running back to Charles Bukowski, an author I enjoy both for prose and for poetry. I decided this gem which I’ve always liked seemed to want to be shared. . . .

Marina
majestic, majic
infinite
my little girl is
sun
on the carpet-
out the door
picking a flower, ha!
an old man,
battle-wrecked,
emerges from his
chair
and she looks at me
but only sees
love,
ha!, and I become
quick with the world
and love right back
just like I was meant
to do.
