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.
After Apple-Picking by Robert Frost
A Short History of the Apple by Dorianne Laux
Hunger by Jack Gilbert
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
DREADFUL (The opening line of this one “Someone ate the baby”. Are you intrigued?)
SKINNY (I love the last sentence in this one.)
