As an English major, poetry surrounds me. Because meditating on poetry is one of my favorite things, I thought I should blog about poetry in bite-sized, daily installations to tame the inundation. Here at Poem of the Day, the task is simple. Every day I choose a poem. It may be discovered from class, or it might be randomly unearthed from a dusty compendium of sonnets. I try to concisely explicate and discuss, or else let my words wander. My contributions are only there hopefully to spark discussion in the comments section, but the main focus is on the anointed poem itself, so that you and I can receive our daily dose of poetry.
