Poet of the Week: Charles Simic

This week's poet is Charles Simic. Click here to read the poet's bio.

We have a lifetime to read but will not be able to read everything by everyone. Hopefully, by offering this feature, you and I might share a little space together where we read as much poetry as we can. 

Simic's work has always fascinated me. I'm delighted to share his poetry with you this week.

Today's poem is "On this Very Street in Belgrade."

Your mother carried you
Out of the smoking ruins of a building
And set you down on this sidewalk
