Poetry

Click on the title of the poem to see the poem. Sometimes it is helpful to know the backstory of a poem. So, where appropriate, you'll find the backstory at the end of the poem. To hear me actually reciting the poem, click the "Yes" link in the [Audio Available] column, if available. Rarely, there may be a video that I have made, anywhere from a simple recitation to a more imaginative interpretation. Again, where available, there will be a "Yes" link.
