Well, today is it. International Poetry Day. World Poetry Day. So, even if it’s friday, I’m not going to do a music post. Why not? Because I feel that I can share something much better and fitting for the day instead!
Poetry sources! Poems, poems all around! And a couple curiosities 😛 If you know about any webpage, share it in the comments! If I have not included your favorite author, link him or her too!
Poetry isn’t just a key to seem interesting and important, even if many use it like that. And it isn’t a dictionary, something that you can learn by hard, ‘this means this’, ‘that means that’ -even if at school it looks that way, because they teach you that way. Poetry is something else. I only know that, for me, it’s important. In my life I need it.
Fundación Federico García Lorca
The Walt Whitman Archive
The Yeats Society of NY
Emily Dickinson Electronic Archives
T. S. Eliot Society
(Some of the ones I’ve thought of, there’s not even all the ones I have books of)
Poetry.com – In which you can share your own poems! I’ve never done it.
And just as a curiosity, visit the Poets’ Graves
And, well, I couldn’t forget Neil Gaiman’s site. Just because.
That’s it for the day! As you may have noticed, I’m posting less these days. Well, I have too much work to do, and even if I find a moment to write here, most times I am far too tired to do so. That’s why this is it. Well, and a couple verses from my own to make the day…
No matter how smart the words,
No feeling can match it,
The feeling of your speaking,
The sensation of your song.
