2009/2010 Poetry read list

2009 was a good poetry reading year. Except for Carl Sandburg, the others were new to me poets and I truly loved to read the varied shades of it. I like to explore poetry in any form. Only in poetry you can say a lot in fewer words. It contains the world!

I read the following poetry books in 2009:

A Climb Through Altered Landscapes by Ian Parks
Mainline to the heart and other poems by Clive Matson
Magdalene and the Mermaids by Elizabeth Kate Switaj
A House of Bottles by Robin Merrill
Selected Poems of Carl Sandburg
Judah's Lion by Anne Caston

I plan to read the following in 2010

1) Selected Poems by Robert Lowell (1917-1977)
2) Renascence and Other Poems by Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)
3) Thirst: poems By Mary Oliver
4) Becoming The Villainess by Jeannine Hall Gaily
5) At the Threshold of Alchemy by John Amen
6 Poetic Musings of an Old, Fat Man by Harry E. Gilleland, Jr.
7) Slamming Open The Door by Kathleen Sheeder Bonanno

Great selection this year and last year! I really loved Gailey's book and Mary Oliver has always been a favorite of mine.

Happy reading
