Poetry Friday: My Year With Carl Sandburg

Regular readers of Jumping the Candlestick know that during 2008 I frequently posted original poems on Fridays. I thoroughly enjoyed doing it; but I'm going to be taking a break from that for a while. In its place, I've got something new in mind.

For Christmas, I was quite pleased to receive a copy of The Complete Poems of Carl Sandburg. The collection is 700+ pages in length, so my plan is to savor my way through it this year, reading (aloud) a couple of poems a day. Then, most Fridays, I'll write at least a little bit about what I read.

(Or at least, that's the plan. We'll see how it goes!)
