Poems for Aug. 26
Optimism by Jane Hirshfield
Taken from Harold Bloom, "Till I end my Song-- a Gathering of Last Poems"
Dirge* by James Shirley (1596-1666) (this is one of Robert Frost’s favorite poems.)
This Living Hand – John Keats (1795-1821)
Crossing the Bar* -- Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)
I was not there to lead the discussion, but not surprisingly given the spirit "O Pen", I was told as satisfying as ever.
