Poetry Corners

How often do you actually take the time to see what is going on in the world of poetry, poets and general musings? Here are some items of interest:

Concord Poetry Center – Scrapbook – The Power – Mark Twain in the January 1876 Atlantic Magazine:

The rhyme Mark Twain quoted is from a book called Trolley Wars:Streetcar Workers on the Line – it really is hard to get that rhyme out of your head.

Here is a local poetry site of interest: Mass Poetry: http://masspoetry.org

Within that site you may find information about the Mass Poetry Festival 2014 with Oliver De La Paz:
