« Making It and Faking It | Main | A Poem for Thanksgiving Week (by Laura Orem) »

November 23, 2009

Fantastic! I needed these. Thanks.

My favorite Thanksgiving poem (and one of my favorite poems for any season), is John Berryman's Dream Song 385, that begins "My daughter's heavier. Light leaves are flying..."

Also, the link that says it's to John Ashbery actually leads to a poem by John Berryman.

Pattiann Rogers' "Geocentric" is one of my stand-by gratitude poems. Read it here:

Maybe we should schedule a group reading featuring John Ashbery, John Berryman, John Ash, and Wendell Berry.

But John Berryman's dead!
