Readers, The Victoria comment you may have seen here has not been deleted. It was moved to the 17 seventeen comment conversation at the end of the post on Inaurural Poet Elizabeth Alexander. If you are a practicing poet, if you care about poetry and how it works, if you know the value of line breaks, and the value of having a poem read aloud along with a definitive copy in your hand, if you care about language, read the conversation between poets: Glenda Beall, Brenda Kay Ledford, Judy Roney, Karen Holmes, Nancy Simpson, N.C. Poet Laureate Kathryn Stripling Byer and others.

Meanwhile, the topic is "WINTER" with a poem by
Dorothea S. Spiegle.
