O Pen : Poems for April 11
Two Trees-- by Ellen Bryant Voigt Variation: Two Trees -- by Ellen Bryant Voigt The world is a beautiful place – by Lawrence Ferlinghetti "Don’t let that horse” (#14) by Lawrence Ferlinghetti Constantly Risking Absurdity (#15) - by Lawrence Ferlinghetti I am intrigued by what makes poems accessible. Why do we perk up our ears to certain things, and not others? I love the idea of writing a poem, and then a variation; I also love that this theme of "everything is beautiful" has endless permutations.
