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.
Meditation at Lagunitas by Robert Hass
Blackberry Eating by Galway Kinnell
Blackberries by Yusef Komunyakaa
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
