A reading of John Keats’ “On the Grasshopper and the Cricket”
Some of the purest poetry I’ve ever heard.
Prolific poet W.S. Mervin reads his poem “Yesterday.” Sometimes poetry touches on painful subjects.
Because it’s Monday:
Jane Hirshfield reads her poem “For What Binds Us.”
A reading of Poe’s “The Raven,” by actor Basil Rathbone.
Robert Frost reads his poem “The Road Not Taken.”
This made me cry: Nikki Giovanni reads her poem “Quilts.”
Mary Oliver reads her poem “Wild Geese.”
Poet Langston Hughes reads his poem: “The Negro Speaks of Rivers.”
