One of my many favorite poems is "the mother" by Gwendolyn Brooks. Robinson's "Luke Havergal" also is a wonderful poem--come to think of it, both poems really emerge because of their sound.
I've always loved literature, and particularly the emotional power of poetry.
I like to read all kinds of poetry, but I am especially drawn lately to Seamus Heaney and Billy Collins (well, who isn't?).
I've always belonged to poetry groups and wanted to try a new one. I'm also an English teacher and love to talk about poems.
