Also last week, the District 97 school board took up a consultant's report that raises the possibility, albeit (judging from the board discussion) faint, of eliminating the school bus program.

When you're in a very quiet place, when you're remembering, when you're savoring an image, when you're allowing your mind calmly to leap from one thought to another — that's a poem. That's what a poem does.
