Mark Valentine: Shakespeare, Frost, Neruda, Dickinson, Dunbar - one of you guys is going to have to step aside to make room for Lin Manuel Miranda on my "5 All-Time Favorite Poets" list.

    Dean Kuch:
    "My wife's the reason anything gets done.
    She nudges me towards promise by degrees.
    She is a perfect symphony of one.

    Our son is her most beautiful reprise.
    We chase the melodies that seem to find us
    Until they're finished songs and start to play.
    When senseless acts of tragedy remind us
    That nothing here is promised, not one day

    This show is proof that history remembers.
    We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger.
    We rise and fall, and light from dying embers
    Remembrances that hope and love last longer.

    And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love;
    Cannot be killed or swept aside.
    I sing Vanessa's symphony; Eliza tells her story.
    Now fill the world with music, love, and pride." ~Lin Manuel Miranda
