2014-06-11 07.53.57Every Tuesday I post a list of the poems I read for my year-long poetry reading goal. I welcome anyone who wants to join me in reading more poetry this year.

The poems for this week were taken from Poems to Learn by Heart  by Caroline Kennedy. These were from the section titled We Dance Round in a Ring and Suppose.

The Girls in the Circle by Nikki Giovanni

We Real Cool by Gwendolyn Brooks

Slam, Dunk, & Hook by Yusef Komunyakaa (Pretty. Perhaps a strange adjective for this one, but that is how I felt about it.)

The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.

HAT (Sounds like an afternoon at my house.)

MY RULES (I think I dated this guy in college. Wow, he has been around for a while…)
