Anita Skeens reads “Blackberries for Amelia” by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Richard Wilbur.


This time of year, farmers markets are filled with all kinds of berries from Michigan fruit farms. One my favorites is the blackberry, and that’s the focus of our next Public Poetry Announcement.

Anita Skeen, director of the MSU Center for Poetry, reads the poem “Blackberries for Amelia” by Richard Wilbur.

Current State’s Public Poetry Announcements are produced in partnership with the MSU Center for Poetry.
