Gathered Around the Fire of the Heart.
Longo, Perie
Journal of Poetry Therapy, v14 n3 p145-57 Spr 2001
Examines the sacredness of language from the early history of language, and how poetry from all times and cultures connects and heals. Describes the author's work in a poets-in-the-schools program and how the children's poems healed the heart of a Chumash Indian elder. Argues that poetry of all peoples can help to truly blend people, rather than separate them. (SR)
