Top 5: Poetry Books I Want to Read

As one of my reading goals this year is to read more poetry, I thought I would show you some of the poetry books I want to read. These are five of the Everyman's Library Pocket Poet books. I really enjoy the covers of these.


1. Haiku (edited by Peter Washington)


This is a collection of classic and modern haiku. I haven't read haiku in ages, so I really want to read this.


2. Poems by Robert Frost


I really love the little I've read of Frost, so I want to explore more.


3. Indian Love Poems (edited by Meena Alexander)


It's important to read diversly, so I want to read some Indian poetry too.


4. Poems of the Sea (edited by J. D. McClatchy)


A collection of poems about the sea, which I think sounds beautiful.


5. Poems Bewitched and Haunted (edited by John Hollander)


Creepy and ghoulish poetry? Yes, please. I might save this for around Halloween!


Definitely need to get around to these very soon...

  1. Have you read No Matter the Wreckage by Sarah Kay? She's an amazing spoken word poet, and her book is a great quick read. I'm definitely going to try to read more poetry too this year!
