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 Giving Thanks section.
A Display of Mackerel by Mark Doty (Strangely, I like this one. I don’t really know much about fish, or buying fish, but this was good.)
The Fish by Billy Collins (Collins always has something interesting to say, even when he is talking to a fish.)
Four Sonnets About Food by Adrienne Su
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
