My poetry project, Where I live: a Devotion to Poetry, wherein I memorize, recite and post 52 poems in 2014 is coming to an end…ahhh…I know I’m sad too. I chose the poems I did for lots of reasons: to make statements, confound, entertain, to reveal a bit of myself, but always with the presentation in mind, not too long, too difficult, something that reads well out loud.
These last few poems will be simply for me. Just poems I like. I hope you’ll like them too. Hear this week’s poem, Song in my Heart,, by Diane Suess.
I will sad when this beautiful project comes to an end and hope that, from time to time, you will recite a poem for us in the future. You’ve introduced me to some wonderful poetry, reminded me of poems I love. This recent one I like a lot, the recitation made all the more lovely by the choir of barking dogs (lamenting the coming end of the project as well perhaps). Hope you are well, Abby, and healed (or, at least, healing).
I will continue to memorize, and likely post on occasion. It will be nice not to have the “deadlines” though. I just realized I actually have to post 6 poems in the next to weeks to make my goal!
6 poems, oh dear. Time to find some super short ones!
On it 🙂
