Yesterday I was meant to go to a master class with American musician and poet, Joy Harjo, but unfortunately was stuck at home because of the weather (I wasn’t ready to take a four-week-old out in the snow and sleet). I thought I would share her amazing and unique poetry on my blog. The poem “My House is the Red Earth” (this version is on the Poetry Foundation website), is one of my favourites. I also have put a link to what must be her most anthologised poem, the powerful “She Had Some Horses”.
