Connecticut Poetry Society, joined by the new Poet Laureate of Middletown, Cheryl
Hale, will present a series of workshops, "Poets on Poetry," tonight
featuring Rumi, with workshop leader Mark Sheriden. Rumi's poems have been
widely translated into many of the world's languages and transposed into
various formats. Like other mystic and Sufi poets of 13 century Persian
literature, Rumi's poetry speaks of love which infuses the world.
