Pierced By a Ray of Sun offers a collection of poems about all of us, for we all sometimes feel we are different and alone. Throughout time poets everywhere have described these feelings and have recognized them as a cost of being human and sensitive to ourselves.
Ruth Gordon has selected poetry that not only reveals the universality of sometimes feeling lonely and alienated, but also stresses, as the poet Jim Northrup writes, that people have "Toughed it out/Survived."
Includes Poems By:
Carl Sandburg, May Sarton, Paul Simon, Rainer Maria Rilke, John Keats, William Butler Yeats,
Malka Heifetz Tussman, Bob Henry Baber, James Masao Mitsui, Jim Northrup, Dona Luongo Stein
