Professor Rathbun read her
poetry at the III Encuentro de poetas en español de Columbus, OH on December 1st,
2012. She is also on the administrative board of the group and moderated the
event. Eleven poets from Mexico, Costa Rica, Cuba, Puerto Rico, The United
States and the Dominican Republic read from their work.
Here is an sample of
Dr. Rathbun's own original poetry where the poetic voice speaks to its love of
the Mexican culture.
yo no nací en tierra mexicana
mi sangre no cuenta con el canto de
flautas y antiguas conchas
de niña no me cantaban de caballitos blancos ni soñé con angelitos
