Poetry Has the Power to Heal and Comfort during a Pandemic After visiting her birth country of China during the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, poet and entrepreneur, Dawn Li, Ph.D., was inspired to organize a group of poets from around the world to write inspirational poems in response to the tragedy. In Poetic Medicine, poets-young and old-came forward in an international effort to unite humanity in a fight against Covid-19. Hailing from places like Nigeria, Australia, India, the United States, Scotland, and China, these poets expressed their own worries, desires, and dreams in words that we can all relate to. Dawn Li grew up in Southern China, and studied and worked in Wuhan for six years, where the coronavirus hit first. She is the author of Song of a Lotus Leaf, a memoir in poetry, and holds a doctorate in literature from George Washington University. Praise for "Poetic Medicine" Poetic Medicine in the Time of Pandemic offers us a healing tapestry of voices that light our way as we navigate through the maze of this new and foreign world of Covid-19. Hear the poetic songs of fear, isolation, and loss singing, and as we recognize our own voices that perhaps we've held inside, we are joined by a chorus that includes humor and hope. We come to accept the uncertainty of this new planet we all live on together, learning to tend to each new feeling as it arises and find the possibility of growth it offers, no matter where we're planted or what the conditions. Through some of these poems, we learn to sit with ourselves in this current life-pause, noticing the glories around us, the small things we used to take for granted that now give us joy and hope. Poetic Medicine should be read one or two poems at a time, like spoonfuls of bitters, a prescription written by a doctor of heart and spirit, to help us metabolize, heal, and have courage in this new life where we now find ourselves. -Meredith Heller, MA, poet and author of Songlines and Write A Poem, and her new book, Save Your Life, will be published in 2021 This is an insightful book that advances our collective understanding of the psychological impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the world. -Saida Erradi, Ph.D., faculty member, John Hopkins University Poetic Medicine in the Time of Pandemic is a mirror and a healing balm. Many of the poems address the uncertainty and brokenness that reminds us that we are in this together. It is a heartening reminder of the alchemy that poets use to both hold and heal. Seeing the world as the poets see it allows us to borrow their eyes and remember the world is both smaller and bigger during our shared quarantine. These poems give us space for our anger, our fear, our gratitude, our hope and our imagining the path ahead. Dawn Li has truly given us healing medicine in this lovely collection. -Wendi R. Kaplan, Poet Laureate, Alexandria, Virginia (2016-2019) The editor compiles moving poems in the spirit of "Love the life we live, live the life we love." In the face of unexpected disasters, poets compassionately offer comfort from the back of the moon, from the eagle's eyes, from high-rise buildings in Manhattan, or in the eyes of masked faces standing six feet away. Behind shut-down windows, poets still see the sun, the moon, and the stars, feel the spring breeze brush their faces, and hear Italians singing from their balconies. The book broadcasts an affectionate melody, gently tugging on our heartstrings. We are not alone in this crisis, as the whole world is in it together. We recall the beauty of the past and we know how to cherish it-even if it's just an early morning cup of Starbucks coffee. One day, we will be free again, and together our spirits will be renewed! -Mingming Cheung, retired interior designer, painter, Founder and CEO of Chinese Culture and Art League, Washington, DC

Romanticism Medicine and the Poet s Body

That medicine becomes professionalized at the very moment that literature becomes "Romantic" is an important coincidence, and James Allard makes the most of it. His book restores the physical body to its proper place in Romantic studies by exploring the status of the human body during the period. With meticulous detail, he documents the way medical discourse consolidates a body susceptible to medical authority that is then represented in the works of Romantic era poets. In doing so, he attends not only to the history of medicine's professionalization but significantly to the rhetoric of legitimation that advances the authority of doctors over the bodies of patients and readers alike. After surveying trends in Romantic-era medicine and analyzing the body's treatment in key texts by Wordsworth and Joanna Baillie, Allard moves quickly to his central subject-the Poet-Physician. This hybrid figure, discovered in the works of the medically trained John Keats, John Thelwall, Thomas Lovell Beddoes, embodies the struggles occasioned by the discrepancies and affinities between medicine and poetry.

As human beings we ought to feed ourselves through our experiences, and learn and grow from them, so that we can nourish ourselves and those around us.'Butterfly', in a nutshell, is designed to feed you poetic medicine in the form of dynamic rhythmic contemplations - deep seated thoughts imparting wisdom, observation, and experience. The rhythmic pieces invite you to relax into the arms of the poems, as you journey along the strings of notes that play out in the poems, often with the use of effervescent words to make enchanting music for the soul.Although some sombre pieces also feature - it is part of the tapestry, always creating a symphony to be nurtured. The pieces are designed to take you on little journeys of contemplation - sometimes pleasurable and satisfying, and often interesting - moments and experiences of profound imagination, and of course food for thought, imparting wisdom across the way.A handful of the pieces might bring one back to the lightweight times of childhood, almost fairytale fantasies to lighten one's load in a heavy world - what you could term as 'floating experience', as the words fall and flow like a rhythmic song - encouraging you, almost like a pleasant meditation whereby you pleasantly float and drift with them.Like an assorted box of the finest chocolates, one can pick one out, enjoy it and savour the moment - and as natural medicine always intended, enjoy the therapeutic tonic, feel nurtured, and embrace the trip.

In this incisive volume Siler traces the uneasy relationship between the content of Keats' poems and social history. In the process, he discovers that the early poems are linked with the mission statement of the radical journal Annals of the Fine Arts, whilst the poems after Endymion reveal a poet more concerned with the nature of poetic representation--its why and wherefore.

For more than a decade The Healing Art of Writing conference has sought to strengthen compassionate understanding between healthcare providers and those who seek a state of well-being beyond the reach of surgery or pharmacology. Together, the participants share the belief that being cured of disease is not the same thing as being healed, and that a practice of expressive writing promotes both spiritual and physical healing. The writings presented at the 2013 conference, collected here in Tell Me Again, are a powerful testament to that belief. Within these pages you will hear, again and again, words of truth, words that uplift, words that heal.

Poetry can be both political and pedagogical. It is utilised in a variety of ways in research to enhance, critique, analyse, and express different voices. Poetry, Method and Education Research brings together international scholars to explore issues as diverse as neoliberalism, culture, decolonising education, health, and teacher identities. A key strength of the book is its attention to poetry as a research method, including discussions of "how to" engage with poetry in research, as well as including a range of research poems. Poetry is thus framed as both a method and performance. Authors in this book address a wide variety of questions from different perspectives including how to use poetry to think about complex issues in education, where poetry belongs in a research project, how to write poetry to generate and analyse "data", and how poetry can represent these findings. This book is an essential resource for students and researchers in education programmes, and those who teach in graduate research methods courses.

Glimpses of her came to him, On the wisps of a dream one night, He could see so many things about her, But her face was hidden from sight. Her hair was long and flowing, And in the dream it covered her face, But her energy he could never forget, Because it was filled with light and grace. And the feelings of peace and acceptance, Which he felt so strongly right there, Swirled around him like soothing waves, As did the tendrils of her hair. He woke to the ribbons of moonlight, With a smile upon his lips, Because before she left him in his dream, She had given him an enchanting kiss. Janine Palmer (Silver Moon)
