Happy National Poetry Month Day 16!
Today’s favorite poem was emailed to me by Poem-A-Day last year. It’s by the poet Claude McKay who was born in Jamaica in 1889. And who later became the major influencer of  the Harlem Renaissance. Gaining the respect of young poets like Langston Hughes.

Here’s his poem, After the Winter, which makes me think of the warm and better things to come after winter. As well as reminds me of my husband’s constant complaints of the cold winters. And his threats to go back home to sunny and warm Jamaica.
