Every 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 The World Is So Full of a Number of Things.
Ballad of the Morning Streets by Amiri Baraka
who are you, little i by E. E. Cummings (of course)
In beauty may I walk from the Navajo translated by Jerome K. Rothenberg
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
