Poems I have read

A few years ago (in October 2013) I began a challenge to read 1001 poems in 1001 days. Unfortunately I did not complete the challenge within that time frame but it did start me on a good habit of consuming a poem or two for breakfast and sometimes also for lunch or a snack in the evening. I like to savour each poem so one or two at a time is plenty for me. I do find that reading poetry is good to slow me down and help me to ponder the meaning and impact of the poet’s words.

This is not some sort of brag, I have been keeping the list privately for several years and am moving it here to collect such stuff all into one place. Also, the list does not include poems I have read on my phone, for some reason that feels like a different experience to me — less deliberate and thoughtful, so I don’t keep note of that sort of reading.
