Richard M. Berlin, MD

“...sweetness comes as if on loan, stays just long enough to make sense of what it means to be alive, then returns to its dark source.”

Richard Berlin, MD, shares a poem by Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Dunn. His poem, "Sweetness," can be found here.

Dr Berlin has been writing a poem about his experience of being a doctor every month for the past 23 years in Psychiatric TimesTM in a column called “Poetry of the Times.” He is instructor in psychiatry, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA.
