A Live look at Love Letters and Poems Through History
– Reaching Across the Distance–
Love letters can reveal the true personality
of the individual that puts pen to paper.
Love letters can bridge time and place.
And they come in many different forms.
Sometimes a love letter offers the love of a friend
and reaches across desolation
to bring the recipient back to the world of the hopeful.
Sometimes the loss a letter conveys is unexpected.
A few words can bring the reality of home
across an ocean
to a distant battlefield.
can be written between the lines.
Some love letters are the trumpets that herald
the return of their author.
These letters leap across time and miles
to escort in the future.
Do something different this Valentine’s Day,
reach across the distance
with a love letter written in your hand,
speaking your words.
