On we go! The Poetry Appreciation Class is now in its ninth year, and there are still a few poems we haven’t read! The format is very simple: I bring along some poems and we talk about them. We avoid writers who expect us to assemble our own poem from a box of parts. Equally we avoid writers who tell us that flowers and children are nice and that life is what you make it. In between there is intelligence, beauty, thoughtfulness and skill—a poetry that makes sense but leaves us something to say, something to contribute.
