  1. What a great selection of poetry books and lucky you to have heard each of these authors/poets speak and read.

  2. Ramona, this is a wonderful set of reminders to us that great poetry is but a book away.

  3. What a list, Ramona. There are a few I needed to be reminded of! Thanks!

  4. Although I've read many of these, Ramona, I haven't read all, so thanks for the ever-so-thoughtful kick in the pants! ;)

  5. Great line-up! Love that poets are the celebrities you collect!!
