And the winner is Katie8laurence!
Congratulations, Katie. I will try to get in touch with you.
Have you read much poetry lately? In this mini-challenge, I challenge you to read a poem written by a poet born in October, to celebrate the October setting of the Dewey Readathon. I have listed the birthday followed by poet name and title of poem and a link to read the poem on-line.
Please read one of the following poems and make a comment about which one you read and how you liked it: I will award ONE person who comments a gift from a bookseller (depending upon your country). I will contact you and give you an option (possibly a mug, a book, or a gift certificate). You can also tweet to me @softclothes and indicat #RATpoem
My selection of a winner might be capriciously random; I cannot award mere speed in poetry reading. But I will select a winner by 4 PM Dewey’s Time and notify him or her. Please get in your answers by 3:45 Dewey’s time at the latest.
2. (Oct. 2) Wallace Stevens: “Bantams in Pine Woods”
3. (Oct. 6) Edward Hirsch: “Branch Library”
4. (Oct. 21) Jilly Dybka: “Carnaval of Souls”
