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.
Farm Country by Mary Oliver
Ode to Chicken by Kevin Young (Mmmm, so much truth in this one.)
The Thanksgivings by Harriet Maxwell Converse (A lovely Iroquois prayer of thanks.)
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
STANDING (I’ve had many moments like this.)
THE ONE WHO STAYED (A little deeper than you might think.)
