Poetry Sunday: Roberta Kirn

Roberta Kirn reads her poem, "Eating the World."  

Roberta Kirn is a song leader, percussionist, and dancer who has been living, working and raising a family on Martha’s Vineyard since 1989. Her goal is to help as many people as possible to sing in community as often as possible. She believes and has experienced that singing together brings us into deeper connection with ourselves and each other. Raising our voices, having a communal experience of rhythm, melody, and harmony is a deeply healing experience that can be shared across age, gender, race, class, and culture. This poem was written in 1989 during her first spring on Martha’s Vineyard.
