The Poetry Center of Chicago and corporate sponsor Lightology are bringing poetry to the masses this holiday season, with an outdoor board located at the corner of Chicago and Wells.
Chicagoist reports that the poem, “Farewell,” is by Chicago poet Li-Young Lee. He wrote it specifically for the occasion, “a non-commercial message Chicagoans could look forward to seeing throughout the holiday season.” According to the organization’s press release, “The Poetry Center and Lightology believe this to be a brilliant message during the holiday season and the darkest part of the year.”
