Noon Edition

Rowing Across The Lake

“Rowing across the lake I begin to notice the space between the stars tonight and how I think it is not as great as the distance between you and I.” -from “Rowing Across the Lake” by David Watters. (JL Field / publicdomainpictures)

"And I feel above me the day-blind stars / waiting for their light. For a time / I rest in the grace of the world, and am free." 

-Wendell Berry

David Watters, author of the chapbooks Hollow & Round and Baby, is an Indiana poet who has lived in Southern Indiana for 14 years. Obsessed with cultivating human connections alongside a generous relationship with the land, he is a poet resident whose work is firmly rooted in place.

On this edition of The Poets Weave, David reads "Rowing Across the Lake" and "Aubade for my Son."
