G. E. Schwartz : part two

How did you first engage with poetry?

At about age three into four when my mother, who took me to various evening novenas and weekly and sometimes daily mass would begin to show me how to follow along the prayers on the page which in the missal were shaped like poems--they had line breaks and scansion. It was also most certainly my first introduction to reading, so both were indelibly braided within me.
