Each Friday we provide the link to the blogger who is hosting a celebration of poetry around the blogosphere. There you can find the links to the many other blogs that are posting poems (new and old), discussions of poems, and reviews of poetry books. It’s also a great way to explore the internet.
Enjoy the festivities!
The host this week is Katie.
You can visit her here.
(Melodian by Eugene Montgomery, 1905-2001,
American portrait painter and muralist)
You cannot reason your way out of heartbreak.
Heart! We will forget him!
You and I — tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave —
I will forget the light!
When you have done, pray tell me,
Then I, my thoughts, will dim.
Haste! ’lest while you’re lagging
I may remember him!
~ Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), American poet
