Mahmoud Darwish RIP

I am not much of a poetry fan. But, one poet that I did enjoy in translation was Mahmoud Darwish. Unfortunately, I am unable to read him in the original Arabic. Darwish wrote about the essential issues facing the Palestinian people and did it in an emotionally powerful way. Two days ago he died at age 67.
