“I dig old books.” ™
This poem is the original source of the popular quotation "How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it." Ms. Elliston was an exceptional investigative reporter in Ohio. She was also a poet on the side, so passionate about the craft that she bequeathed much of her estate to the University of Cincinnati to encourage and promote the study and composition of poetry.
