Every Sunday 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 The Hungry Ear by Kevin Young. The following are from the introduction and the chapter titled Harvest Moon – First Harvest.
Perhaps the World Ends Here by Joy Harjo (a beautiful poem about the kitchen table)
August by Mary Oliver
Blackberry-Picking by Seamus Heaney
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
