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.

    Last Songs
    by Galway Kinnell

    What do they sing, the last birds
    coasting down the twilight,
    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?

    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.
