This bi-weekly feature on KUMD's Northland Morning celebrates the other languages that make up the rich cultural landscape of our Northland through the medium that communicates it best: poetry. We'll invite guests to share a poem in their native language, and find out what it is about the poem or the poet that speaks to them. Explore different cultures through the nuance of their native languages - but get a little help in the form of an English translation along the way!(poetry) on KUMD is made possible by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Three of Minnesota's finest poets - Joyce Sutphen, Connie Wanek, and Thom Tammaro - offered poetic commentary on life in the time of climate change during the most recent episode of Climate Emergency Poetry.

And Connie Wanek channeled another one when she read a piece from the late Louis Jenkins, and offered one of her own, Old Duluth, that she wrote about her friend.

Information about the next episode of Climate Emergency Poetry can be found here.
