        For What Binds Us, by Jane Hirshfield

        This video segment from Poetry Everywhere features the poet Jane Hirshfield reading her poem "For What Binds Us" at the Dodge Poetry Festival. What does it mean to have a relationship over time? Jane Hirshfield wonders in her poetry about different kinds of bonds between people, some of which we cannot anticipate. How much we can really help each other, even the ones we love? How does time change relationships and heal wounds?

        For a biography of the poet Jane Hirshfield please visit the Poetry Foundation Web site.

        This media asset comes from Poetry Everywhere filmed at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival.
