Poetry

Between August 17, 2016 and September 3, 2017, I had a feature on this blog called Poetry Thursday (which became Poetry Sunday when I couldn't stay on top of the schedule) where I posted links to poems that I loved. Although I gave up on this feature because, even with its simple format, I still didn't read enough poems to have one to recommend weekly, I do love the poems that I recommended during that time. Thus, for your convenience, I have collected them all into a list sorted by poet that is shown below. (If, for some reason, you'd rather look through the original posts instead of going straight to the poems, click here for a list of posts.)
