Poetry, VOLUME 6

Thomas Merton – Three Poems

Thomas Merton

 

Thomas Merton is one of my favorite poets of the 2oth century.

The Biography is probably my favorite of Merton’s poems, but as I have already shared that poem here, I offer three more poems that serve as a rich introduction to Merton’s poetry.
 
These poems can be found in:
