"Spun silk of mercy,
sun urging purple blossoms from baked stems..."
Join us tomorrow at The Green Center at 4:00pm for a discussion of Naomi Shihab Nye's poem "Last August Hours Before the Year 2000". Nye was born in St. Louis and grew up in San Antonio, Texas and Jerusalem. Though it's not August yet, we still see "baked stems" all around, and as the poet says: "What better blessing than to move without hurry under trees?" Stay cool with us under the trees and celebrate Nye's poem with friends new and old.
