Host Ada Limón delivers a different way to see the world – through poetry. In just one turn of phrase, poetry can anchor us, or shift a moment, a day, or even a whole life. Join us for a poem and a moment of reflection in one short episode, every weekday. Produced by American Public Media in partnership with The Poetry Foundation.

Such a nice way to hear many poets’ voices
I would enjoy each listen - hearing the poem, first!
I do enjoy Ms. Limon’s voice, explanations, etc - it would all work best, after hearing the poems.
