I got an automated email from my library today and three books I’ve requested are waiting for me. Yay! I’ve been very good so far this year as most of my reads are books from my stacks. A very difficult thing for me indeed as I pass by the library every day. I’m always tempted to stop in and see what’s new. Anyway, I think it’s time for a nice trip to the library don’t you think?
While I’m at the library I hope to find some poetry books in preparation for National Poetry Month. I spent some time this evening reading a few poems but couldn’t decide on one to post. I did find this quote over at Poets.org and I like it a lot.
“For poems are not, as people think, simply emotions (one has emotions early enough)—they are experiences.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Poets.org also had a list of the Most Popular Poems of 2006. What do you think? Are any of these your favorites? I’m kind of loving the Gwendolyn Brooks poem right now. You can read the full text and listen to an audio clip on the site. Real cool.
So I hope everyone has a great weekend and next post I’ll let you know what goodies I found at the library.
