News in Poetry Snow and poetry
Posted by Ozymandias on Sunday, March 09, 2014 (01:33:02)

This trail invites one to pause. The trail I am skiing has about half a dozen poems mounted on sign posts at intervals along the route. The poems have titles like Vagabond Song and May Day and The Winter. I’m no judge of poetry but I admire the artful use of language, the meter, and the economy with which poets wring meaning from text. So I stop to read them even though it offends my desire to create distance and burn calories.Link!
