Of these, I only know three, so clearly I have my work cut out for me! (I also never knew Martin Espada was Jewish, so the project gets more and more rewarding.)
"Wow -- ten poems I wish every Jew in America would read, eh? Okay, I'll give that a shot, with the caveat that I'm away from my study and am doing this off the top of my head, and I might generate a different list tomorrow:
- Alicia Ostriker's "A Meditation in Seven Days"
- Irena Klepficz's "Der mames shabosim/My Mother’s Sabbath Days"
- Rodger Kamenetz's "History of the Invisible"
- Ira Sadoff's "Hasids on the Subway"
- Merle Feld's "We All Stood Together"
- Marge Piercy's "The Art of Blessing the Day"
- Lynn Gottlieb's "Spring Cleaning Ritual on the Eve of the Full Moon Nissan"
- Martín Espada's "Imagine the Angels of Bread"
Well, there's eight. I feel certain there should be some John Hollander on the list, but can't pick one without having a book in front of me... :-)"
C'mon, folks--who else should we add, and why?
