The Persimmons Poem.

I’m linking here to “Persimmons,” by Li-Young Lee, over at the Poetry Foundation.  It’s been a favorite of mine since college.

I believe I’ve linked to it here at the blog before, the subject of the poem came up again, as a friend of mine actually grows persimmons in his backyard and posted pictures on Facebook.  (Will the wonders of rural Virginia never cease?)
