  • a poem for the spring equinox

    Just as there are poems beloved by people in certain places, so it seems that there are poems beloved by people in certain professions. Therapists and teachers love this one by Leonard Cohen, the chorus of the song Anthem, with its lovely dedication to wabi-sabi and the broken beauty of each of us:

    Anthem

    ring the bells that still can ring

    forget your perfect offering

    there is a crack in everything

    that's how the light gets in
