Welcome, Brother Joe. I am so grateful to America for all of its commitments to the arts and to culture, but especially to its continuing belief in the place of poetry in our lives. Ask any child. They know about rhythm and rhyme and laughter and why words are important and why words are to be spoken and why the word is loved. You were well chosen. Blessings in your new adventure.
