Emerging Poet

In early August, another college student from Central Connecticut State University, David G. Rich, came to Wisdom House to work on his poetry. He was able to come for a weekend because of the generous funds from the Beatrice Fox Auerbach Fund of The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.

HFPG has given Wisdom House funds to provide this opportunity to students at area colleges. One of the poems David was working on that weekend is printed below:

Even against a clouded sky-
Shadows still reign forth.
Evening light long since vapor-
The night has come a new.

On a cladded stoop a writer ponders-
Unfamiliar sights.

But comfort in his words he holds-
For they can shine in black.

~ David G. Rich
