Stanley Kunitz has died at the age of 100. He was twice the poet laureate of the United States. In spring 2005, his friend and fellow poet Mark Doty came on the Lopate Show to read a poem he wrote about Stanley Kunitz. We re-air it today in his honor. It's called "Heaven for Stanley," and it's from Doty's collection School of the Arts.
