If you haven’t noticed, I’ve added a new feature to my blog; the “Audio Poem of the Day”. As you know, I love reading and writing poetry. As I’ve gotten into it more I’ve developed a greater appreciation for the spoken word especially poetry read aloud. It can be an entirely different experience from simply reading a poem to yourself. Poetry comes alive when spoken and can take on a myriad of meanings and emotions depending upon the mood and inflections provided by the speaker’s voice. Indeed, the same poem voiced by two different speakers can almost seem like two different poems.
So, I’ve decided to add the “Audio Poem of the Day” feed from the Poetry Foundation to my blog. I enjoy listening to them each day and I hope you will too. You can listen to each day’s poem as well as the previous two day’s by clicking on the “Audio Poem of the Day” links on the menu to the right. Enjoy!
