As September draws to a close, it’s time to prepare for another poet, and I’m fairly excited about this one. When I first began writing poetry, I must admit that most of what I wrote was quite shamelessly ripping off 20th-century English poet W.H. Auden. While I’ve moved on to other poets, my years of reading and teaching Auden have stayed with me and it’s exciting to be revisiting his work. The challenge, of course, will be confining myself to only four of his poems. I look forward to sharing them with you over the month to come!
