Poetry Share

Hey Creative Writer,

This week we would love to know a little bit about what makes you tick.

Poetry may not be everyone’s strong suit but it is one of the oldest forms of written expression – alive and well in our world, lyrical language moves us!

Sonnets, songs, free verse or slam- share some of the poems you love. Maybe your poem will help someone or let them see a new and different point of view.

  1. I’ll Start… I remember having to memorize this poem when I was in high school and I can still recite it word for word. I love the imagery and the sense of peace that comes over me when I read it. It has endured as one of my top favorite poems!

    Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
    By Robert Frost

    Whose woods these are I think I know.
    His house is in the village though;
    He will not see me stopping here
    To watch his woods fill up with snow.

    My little horse must think it queer
    To stop without a farmhouse near
    Between the woods and frozen lake
    The darkest evening of the year.

    He gives his harness bells a shake
    To ask if there is some mistake.
    The only other sound’s the sweep
    Of easy wind and downy flake.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

  2. (I memorized this one for a poetry class in college and can still remember . . . parts of it.)

    Last Songs
    by Galway Kinnell

    1
    What do they sing, the last birds
    coasting down the twilight,
    banking
    across woods filled with darkness, their
    frayed wings
    curved on the world like a lover’s arms
    which form, night after night, in sleep,
    an irremediable absence?

    2
    Silence. Ashes
    in the grate. Whatever it is
    that keeps us from heaven,
    sloth, wrath, greed, fear, could we only
    reinvent it on earth
    as song.
