NPM 4-21: Valentine for Ernest Mann

Today I'll be walking all over downtown Richmond as part of the 2018 RVA Taco Crawl. Since I'll be eating tacos at 7 different restaurants, it will be good to walk a bit between bites.

Whenever I hear the word taco, I can't help but think of Naomi Shihab Nye and her poem Valentine for Ernest Mann.
You can read it at

Happy Saturday all.


  1. That is one of my favorite poems! I love Naomi Shihab Nye.

  2. I love even the timber of her voice - so lovely. And the concept that poems hide... is wonderful.
