check out our poet laureate's project, many favorite and many unfamiliar (to me) poets, each reading a selected poem out loud. Good stuff!
Thanks, Mr. Pinsky. Great idea!
oh, and check out this, too. (scroll to Katherine Mechling, a fifth grader. I couldn't find a way to post it directly.)
and here's my "found poem" for today (thanks to Beliefnet Horoscope):
"A Different Kind of Discomfort"
Just as we start to recover from the heaviness
of yesterday's Mars-Saturn opposition, we face
a different kind of discomfort. Instead of being
constrained by responsibilities, today's Leo Moon
encourages spontaneity. Rather than preventing
us from doing what we want, authoritative Saturn
is now just a serious annoyance. The Moon's entry
into careful Virgo at 7:01 pm EDT announces that
playtime is over and we must again think
about the workweek ahead.
