Dear Poet

April 26th, 2018 · No Comments · Books, City Library, Main Branch, West Branch

Let’s imagine you could write to your favorite poet and ask what inspired them to write a particular poem. Who would that poet be? What question would you like to ask?

Here is my note to Ted Kooser:

Dear Ted,

What were you doing and thinking when the idea for the poem entitled “A happy birthday” came to mind? Was it your birthday? Were you sitting inside watching night fall?

A fan, Clarissa

 

For more poetry by Ted, check out his book “Delights & shadows”.
