Dear Friends,

Sometime near the turn of the fifth century, Benedict of Nursia wrote a book of precepts for monks living communally. The book begins: "Listen carefully, my child, to the master's instruction, and attend to them with the ear of your heart."

It goes without saying that I am no saint! But I happen to believe that poets today offer saintly perspectives to a changing world. So, Moonrocks is an archive of recordings that tap the advice, insight, and love within poems and the poets behind them.
