The Oklahoma State Poet Laureate visits the Hospital

The Oklahoma State Poet Laureate, Jeanetta Calhoun Mish, visited The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital. Mish spent time with the patients by reading poems and helping them write their own poems. Mish visiting the Hospital was an exciting experience for the patients, especially for Greta, who has a love for poetry.

“The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital is such a beautiful, loving place. I’m so grateful I got to come here,” said Mish.
