Patricia Jabbeh Wesley in the New York Times

One Day, love song for the newly divorced

June 23, 2020

We’re grateful to Naomi Shihab Nye for selecting Patricia Jabbeh Wesley‘s poem “One Day” to appear in the New York Times Magazine who shares the following insight about her poem:

Right now, everyone wants another day, a different day. In her cleansing litany of a poem, Patricia Jabbeh Wesley promises that it is coming. After a wrenching parting, it is coming. After seasons of need or fear, it is coming.

Read “One Day” from Praise Song for My Children: New and Selected Poems on the New York Times Magazine‘s website.
