… invite you to read my poetry posted for
National Poetry Writing Month 2022 ?
Marching toward April, poets may
Come late—or else arrive too soon.
So write them off. They have their day
And then they decompose by June.
So snowdrops spring to early flower
Long before the others bloom . . .
Bright with primaveral power
Hailing life—and then, the tomb.
The magnitude of poetry’s uselessness is the single enduring argument for why you go on reading it. Its importance rests on its thorough invisibility.
National Poetry-writing Month has already blossomed and lost its petals.
Thanks to everyone who visited during April.
