Poetry roundup

October 25th, 2012

I’ve been re-reading The Complete Love Poems of May Swenson, and the first poem in the collection is “Four Word Lines” which is damn near as perfect a love poem as I’ve ever read. I was delighted to find it on line here (and in the process discover a new blog I’m going to have to check out!).

At Rattle, “Tying the Knot” by Kathleen Dale.

And Pablo Neruda’s “The Song of Despair” via Poets.org.
