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.
Fall by Wendell Berry
Vespers by Louise Gluck (layered, and thought provoking, and it’s about tomato plants…)
Pokeberries by Ruth Stone
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
