This is my first Sunday as a Gwarlingo subscriber. That means beginning this morning, every Sunday morning from now on, I open my e mail and find a poet featured.  

Imagine my joy when I opened and found the featured poet is the poet I consider "the best"--Kathryn Stripling Byer. 

I encourage you all to subscribe to Gwarlingo if you have not already done so.
What better way to start a new week?
