40 Great Poems

Because this month is National Poetry Month I decided that my “40” post should be full of poems I love (see my other posts in the series.) Today is the last day of the month, so if you have squeezed any poetry in this month here’s your opportunity. Poems are listed in the order I thought of them, and links go to Poetry Foundation or Poets.org if available.

Do you have a poem you love that’s not on the list? Please drop me a comment 💬 to let me know about it. I love discovering new poetry.
