I’d fallen behind in my reading of First Things so much that, on my vacation, I found myself reading an issue from May of 2016 (you guys back then will never guess what happens next!).
The poem, “Your Grandmother’s Verse” by Joseph S. Salemi, is spot on.
After my vacation, I took a moment to re-subscribe to the magazine, which means I will probably spend more time in my parlor with the papers and magazines than in the downstairs chair with books. Which is kind of the case already.
