I'm writing this post in order to include links to some of the websites I use to find poems for teaching--and for enjoying on my own.
- Poetry 180--The poetry initiatiative created by Billy Collins when he was Poet Laureate.
- Favorite Poem Project--The poetry iniative created by Robert Pinsky when he was Poet Laureate.
- Poems for Teaching from the Academy of American Poets--A nice collection of poems available online and elsewhere that are perfect for the discussions we've been having in class. You might also like the broader website for the Academy of American Poets.
Enjoy the poems and be sure to tell me which ones you like!
