Dear Friends, San Francisco and our nation need a rebirth of wonder at this moment in our world when, in Yeats’ words,
“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world…
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.”
You can help create that place of wonder. I am writing to ask you for your help in our $3M Campaign to Create The Poets Plaza Piazza Saint Francis. We need angels with golden wings and deep pockets. Would you be able to assist us with a donation and an investment in our dream to create a beautiful plaza that will be located in the 600 block of Vallejo Street in North Beach, San Francisco, between the landmark National Shrine of Saint Francis and the Caffe Trieste, the historic bohemian gathering place?
Inspired by the lovely piazzas of Italy, this public square will be an oasis for San Franciscans and a national site for poets, with a permanent poets’ podium built in one corner of the square. There will also be chess tables, stone benches and olive trees.
Should you want to know more about the poetry to be incised on the plaza or more information on
