What Harriet Thinks About the Japanese Crisis

You may already know about this, but Harriet, a blog of the Poetry Foundation, asked their Facebook fans for poems of sorrow and grieving that might be relevant to the crisis in Japan. Their stated aim is to "balance our feelings of helplessness with constructive or creative energy (derived from hope)" and to "allow us to begin speaking about what is happening, to cast off numbness, and to begin grieving."

You probably won't find any lines here that you haven't read before, but at times like these, the familiar is often what is comforting.
