We conclude our look at Poetry & Democracy with music.

Last month’s daylong Morristown series from the Dodge Poetry Program concluded with a song from The Parkington Sisters, and a chant from the nonprofit Wind of the Spirit Immigrant Resource Center.

Here is video of The Parkington Sisters– Sarah, Rose and Ariel–performing their composition, Today:

And here is Wind of the Spirit, asking Which Side Are We On?

This session at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, titled In Praise: A Hundred Ways to Kneel and Kiss the Earth, featured reflections on gratitude and our common humanity by eight poets: Janet Aalfs, Jan Beatty, Reginald Dwayne Betts, Cortney Lamar Charleston, Catherine Doty, Rigoberto González, Joe Weil, and Rachel Wiley.

You can see videos of their performances here:
