A few weeks ago I added to my blog a link to the “Audio Poem of the Day” on the Poetry Foundation web site. Prior to that, on April 9th of this year I posted a link to a post entitled “Poets in Performance” on Bill Moyers’ blog. There he’s collected a number of videos of poets reciting their own poetry and that of others. It’s truly engrossing.
These were ways of encouraging enjoyment of the spoken word. If you’ve not listened to spoken word performances, you’re in for a treat. It’s an entirely different experience from reading them to yourself. Along those lines, I recorded a few of my own poems and posted them here on my blog. They can be found by clicking on “Recorded Poems” on the menu bar above or by clicking here. This was an entirely new experience for me and a bit of a stretch so I am particularly interested in your feedback. I hope you’ll take the time to listen to one or two and leave your comments. As always, they are very much welcome and appreciated.
