It’s a banner week at the Carnival, with two of our hosts posting almost back to back –or more accurately, me managing to post their round-up twice in one week.
Rebecca brought together more than a dozen entries on the subject of poetry, ranging from children’s, to romantic, to a teachers’ guide, to zombie haiku (hey, somebody had to do it, right?). If that just isn’t enough for you, check out her link to Savvy Verse and Wit’s month long Poetry event — there’s a cornucopia of linky goodness for you there.
This edition contains really a wonderful variety of surprising angles to the topic of poetry, and even for the poetry-challenged among us1, it’s engrossing. One thing you have to admit about poetry as a topic: it tends to reveal very personal insights about the person discussing it2, which makes for great reading.
So a big thanks to Rebecca for classing up the joint3 with a topic that, perhaps more than any other, indulges a bookworm’s love of words, in all their beauty and power.
