Seven Classic January Poems

January Poems

One of my goals for the New Year is to read more poetry…

 

Certainly our new Lectionary Poetry project will help with that, but we also will try to feature other sorts of poems here.  Below you’ll find seven classic January poems — many of which are available in FREE ebooks! Mary Oliver, W.S. Merwin, Denise Levertov, Emily Dickinson, MORE

 
 

Blizzard
William Carlos Williams

Found in the book
Sour Grapes
(Available as FREE Ebook on the page linked above)

Snow:
years of anger following
hours that float idly down–
the blizzard
drifts its weight
deeper and deeper for three days
or sixty years, eh? Then
the sun! a clutter of
yellow and blue flakes–
Hairy looking trees stand out
in long alleys
over a wild solitude.
The man turns and there–
his solitary track stretched out
upon the world.
