About This Newsletter

"A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds."

Percy Bysshe Shelley

"It is written on the arched sky; it looks out from every star. It is the poetry of Nature; it is that which uplifts the spirit within us."

John Ruskin (1819-1900)

Letter from the editor

April Shower Your Poetry Garden

I listen to the rain against the windows, thinking about my happy garden.

Like that garden, as poets we create this portfolio garden of work. The more you practice poetry, the bigger and more vibrant it becomes. Sometimes that work is the fertilizer in our garden, sometimes it's the sunshine, and other times it's the rain. All come together to make a great garden.

Take advantage of every opportunity to make an amazing poetry garden. To help you along the way, here is another poetry form to practice.

Comment: Three Irish heritage poems

Rannaigheacht Mhorr Writing.Com

Drinking my hot coffee dream
Must have cream and honey not
Ought to be just augh steam
Dark screams as I drink a dark shot
in the dawning light see love
My dove sleeping there be
Filling me holding her glove
My true love belongs be me

Snamh Saud Poem

hot coffee
not toffee
in morning
get going
my hot mood
a rude dude
drinking nude
lust growing

Irish Rain Poem Writing Com

Drinking my hot coffee in the morn
all that I can do is drink
whenever I drink, I am born
I am living in the blink
