Today concludes our series, “One Poem a Day Won’t Kill You,” produced in honor of National Poetry Month. Many thanks to the 35 Philipstown and Beacon neighbors and friends who took time to record their favorite verses for our readers and to remind us of poetry’s power to affect us. Thanks also to Kevin Foley, Michele Gedney, Greg Gunder, Alison Rooney, Chip Rowe and Kate Vikstrom for their enthusiasm and help.
