2015-04-08 10.02.06Every Sunday I post a list of the poems I read. This started last year when I set a year-long poetry reading goal. The year is over, but the habit remains. I welcome anyone who wants to join me in reading more poetry.

The poems for this week were taken from The Hungry Ear by Kevin Young. The following are from the Wintering: Soup Lines & Staples section.

Te Deum by Charles Reznikoff (Liked this one a lot.)

I, Too, Sing America by Langston Hughes (You can never go wrong with a Hughes poem. So good.)

To a Poor Old Woman by William Carlos Williams (Always a detailed image.)

The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends, the 30th Anniversary Special Edition added poems.


OPEN-CLOSE (So much truth. Last two lines are the best.)
