It’s time for another Take a Poem, Leave a Poem segment on the blog. To show you how it works, my first Take a Poem, Leave a Poem post is below:
I’ve been inspired by the “take a penny, leave a penny” jar at the local deli.
Poems in the jar today:
“Arf” by Jack Myers
Naomi Shihab Nye reading her found poem “One Boy Told Me”
“Con el dolor de la mortal herida” or “Love Opened a Mortal Wound” by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, translated by Jaime Manrique and Joan Larkin
“In Praise of Noise” by James Arthur
“A Coin-Operated Railroad” by Mary Biddinger
Please take at least one, and please leave a story or a poem in it’s place in the comments section.
Happy reading! Andrea
