Poetry Thursday

A poster from last year's Poetry Month hangs proudly on my cube wall. It has snippets of lots of different poems. Here's one my favorites--and one that is particularly relevent on this dark, dreary, and snowy morning here in Boston:

I wake to sleep and take my waking slow


And in other literary news, here's a reading that I may try to go to next week, though I'll have to be late because of my French class:

Wish I could go to the Paley reading. I've met her before--she's a nice woman and great writer/reader.

I'm definitely feeling yawny today myself. Wow, I wish I could see Grace Paley read. I'm surprised you can squeeze in anything else, though! I have a friend who used to live in her apt. in NY in the 60s- she let her stay for free!
