Tom Devaney's poem written for my 50th

Tom Devaney wrote a poem to mark my 50th birthday back in March of 2006. It was recently published in Arts Poetica and here's the link. The poem that Tom read at our post-9/11 event - called "Finding the Words" - I found very beautiful and moving, even though--as Tom pointed out--it had nothing directly to do with the World Trade Center attacks and had been written six months earlier.
