If you have been here for a little while, you know that I love poetry and I have a whole series about poetry called Poetry Spotlight (you can see the series posts here). So today I thought I would just link you guys to some of my favorite poems. I could write a novel about why I love these poems, but I think poetry is so much better when you just read it with no outside influence and make your own connection to it.
