Forum: Poetry - Sena Havasy

  “I think that I shall never see
  A poem lovely as a tree.”

Written in 1913, this poem by Joyce Kilmer has often been criticized as too simple, too insipid, too sentimental, and not lovely at all. Yet it lives on…and on…and on. Such is the power of even “bad” poetry.


Do you have a favorite poem, one that you’ve read or maybe even written yourself?  Please share it with other Humanists at our Fifth Annual Poetry Forum.

We are taking sign-ups at the greeters table. For more information contact Sena Havasy at [masked].

After the Forum, please join us for a buffet lunch at 12:15pm.  The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.

    I definitely will be there, with one poem to read and a handful of doggerel 4-line verses based on one topic, if there's time for more after the first round.
