Poems for April 28

Inklings by John Olson from Seattle’s “Lines on a Spine” 2007 National Poetry Month
Don’t Let That Horse . . . by Lawrence Ferlinghetti (born March 24, 1919)
Venice Beach by Michael Hofmann
The Garden by Andrew Marvell: (1621–1678)

Poetry Month... so many sources, so many poems -- and for me, a time of shifting, getting ready to leave our home of 15 years for a smaller place. Inklings, ending with "Where do we go from here" reminded me of beat poet, Ferlinghetti -- we had enjoyed "Dog" and "Constantly Risking Absurdity". Hofmann's poem in Poetry, March, was inspired by Marvell's Garden over 3 centuries ago...
