Poet Richard Blanco Helps Us Slow Down And Reflect During The Busy Holiday Season


There’s more to holiday poetry than just “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” says poet Richard Blanco.

For that reason, in the latest edition of his regular poetry segment on Boston Public Radio, Blanco chose a few of his favorite holiday poems, but “not the ‘Christmas sweater’ version of poetry — something to make us reflect,” he said.

“The holidays are a time to reflect, to think about gratitude as the New Year approaches,” he said.
