Thursday Thirteen: 13 Poems Worth Reading

I’ve discovered a fun little meme called Thursday Thirteen, and for my inaugural list I could think of nothing better than to list thirteen poems I think everyone should read. I love each of them, for different reasons, but they all share one thing: when I read them, something in my soul awakens and the longing to write is renewed within me. I’ve posted links to each poem, and I invite you to follow each one and discover the joys of poetry, the splendor of the well-crafted line and the well-chosen word.
