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.
Tommy by Gwendolyn Brooks
from As You Like It, II, v, 5-12; 18-25 William Shakespeare
Anecdote of the Jar by Wallace Stevens
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
