Susan Larison Danz reads poetry to uplift our spirits, and also offers reflections amid the poems.

Poets featured today are Andrew Marvell, 1621-1678 ("The Garden") and William Wordsworth, 1770-1850 ("Lines Written in Early Spring" and "To a Butterfly")

(As a sidenote, as it carries a bit of a lesson regarding how many of us can feel insecure about our memories or instincts, when I "double checked" the pronuncation of "Marvell" before coming on the air, I was led to something different than what I thought - which I later discovered had been customized to my locale and was "Americanized".  I had already discovered when hastily cutting and pasting to a blog some days earlier that some of the earlier lines of The Garden also appear in different ways online.  This brings up the question:  How do we know our "sources" are correct?  If something is repeated a particular way, does that necessarily make it true?  It's a rather deep and important question to reflect upon. ~ Susan)
