The Little Ghost, by Edna St. Vincent Millay

The Little Ghost, by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Ghostly or not, I found this poem to be sweet and a little sad. It reminded me some of Anne Rice’s character, Claudia, from Interview with the Vampire. (It was, incidentally, my favorite book among those I’ve read of Rice’s vampire series. Her main character, Louis, will forever hold a piece of my heart. But […]

Wind poems, by Rossetti, Stevens, Frost

I love the wind. Love it as long as it’s not so icy cold that it bites your skin (and even then, if I’m in the mood, I find it thrilling). Love it as long as it doesn’t threaten with tremendous gusts (and then, as long as no terrible harm is done, it leaves me […]

Two Butterflies went out at Noon, Emily Dickinson

In honor of the butterflies we’ve been “raising” (post on them to come), I thought I’d share Two Butterflies went out at Noon, by Emily Dickinson. Dickinson was born (1830) and died (1886) in Amherst, Massachusetts. She lived in relative isolation throughout her life, although her family provided her with intellectual and emotional companionship. The […]

Sheltered Garden, by H. D.

I took only one poetry class in college, but during that time, I was introduced to the poems of H. D. (Hilda Doolittle)  and have loved them ever since. I associate them with gardens and seascapes, and pine trees bending in the wind. A bit about her: Doolittle was born on September 10, 1886 in Bethlehem, […]

Inscription for the Entrance to a Wood, by William Cullen Bryant

It’s time for another installment of Feels Friday, since I haven’t had time to catch my breath lately, let alone write something of my own. This week, I’m going old-school with a poem that’s a longtime favorite of mine: Inscription for the Entrance to a Wood, written by William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878). Bryant was known […]

Summer Song, by William Carlos Williams

I’m a day late for Feels Friday, but it’s the weekend, so are we really going to let that bother us? Anyway, I refuse to allow a little old thing like time stop me from sharing a poem by one of my forever-favorites: William Carlos Williams (1883-1963). First, a bit about the man: he was […]

I’ve decided to start sharing poems on my blog…because I can and because I love, love poetry. In fact, though I’ve been writing fiction on and off for some time, what I used to write the most was poetry. Not the best poetry, or even close, but I loved it, anyhow. Because I’m feeling brave […]
