Did Someone Say Poetry?

What’s your favorite poet?
Can you tell me why?
Staff were asked, some time passed,
And here is their reply.

Will you join the conversation?
Will you add your fave?
Put your comments down below
Do it and be brave!

Picnic, Lightning by Billy Collins. “When I read the poem “I chop some parsley while listening to Art Blakey’s version of ‘Three Blind Mice'” out loud to my dad, he laughed until he cried.”
Collected Poetry of Nikki Giovanni, 1968-1998 by Nikki Giovanni. “You can hear the fierceness of her voice.”
The Hill We Climb by Amanda Gorman. “She gave an amazing performance at the 2021 inauguration.”
An American Sunrise by Joy Harjo. “She’s the American Poet Laureate.”
Selected Poems by John Keats. “He was able to capture the emotion and imagination of the poetic Romanticism movement.”
