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 Churning and Preserving section.
Butter by Elizabeth Alexander
Ode to Butter by Linton Hopkins (This one was rather long, though butter, let’s admit, deserves a long ode..)
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
