In Honor of Poetry Month: Participation!

In honor of National Poetry Month, and in order to celebrate the power of language, we’ll be featuring some snippets from favorite poems of members (current, past, and vicarious) of the department, along with their brief statements of why they chose this work or author, and why the work is meaningful to them or worthy of your attention. These suggestions can be personal, idiosyncratic, iconoclastic. Original work is highly encourage, and your diligent webmasters will try to feature all that we receive. If you’d like to contribute something, please email the following information to ajtracy@pugetsound.edu:
1. The poem’s title
2. The poem’s author (publication information, where relevant, is appreciated)
3. A brief excerpt that can be included without bringing down the wrath of various publishers and copyright attorneys
4. 1-2 sentences about why you chose this work or selection–anything from its place in your own development as a reader and writer, to a personal memory it evokes, or the sentiment in conveys.
