This has got to be one of my most cherished books. This vintage poetry book that my mom found at a thrift store. It even has a weird inscription inside it, lol. She gave it to me when I was a senior in highschool, at a time when our relationship wasn't good. I fell in love with these poems. They comforted me. The book went everywhere with me.
It's been a really, really hard couple of days. I'm trying so hard to keep it together....
Missing Ashbery today. This December 1955 #vintagePOETRY issue is the first time his name appeared on the cover of the magazine. John Ashbery's first poems were published in POETRY in the early 1950s, when Ashbery was just a teenager, but his name didn't appear next to his poems. Instead, one of his high school classmates took Ashbery's poems and submitted them to the magazine as his own, committing what would become one of the most remembered acts of plagarism in 20th-century poetry. #poetryfoundation#poetrymagazine#johnashbery

This very dark #vintagePOETRY issue is from September 1972, in response to POETRY magazine editor Daryl Hine's letter, from May 1972, which reads:
I wish to publish a Special Issue of POETRY protesting the acceleration of the undeclared Indo-Chinese War and shall be grateful to consider any poem on this terrible and topical subject that you might wish to contribute, as soon as possible.
I am not an American citizen, but this is not an American issue. It is of global importance.
Poetry is a matter of life and death.
You can find the anti-war poems from the issue, along with letters from famous poets both agreeing and disagreeing with Hine's solicitation, in our archives at poetrymagazine.org #poetrymagazine#poetryfoundation#1970s#peace#vietnamwar#vietnam#poetrymagpic

Nothing special for my Czech, English, American, French and "all over the world" fellows- just reading my own kinda poetry in Russian
Видосики с песенками снимать пока не с кем, поэтому пока что, исключительно в оздоровительных целях для своего русского языка, практикую попытки начать писать.
Безымянная непоэзия, часть 1.
"Legend has it there is always a reason why souls meet. Maybe they found each other for reasons that weren't so different after all. They were two souls searching and found a home lost in each other. When souls find comfort in one another separation is not possible. The reasons they are brought together are no accident... Maybe she needed someone to show her how to live and he needed someone to show him how to love".--Poem by N.R. Hart.
This mysteriously beautiful vintage poem is one of my all time favourite poems out there.. thought of sharing it on the page.. hope you guys fall in-love with the story line as much as I did.. Stay magical ❤😘
This is one of my favorite books, I think it's so beautiful. It's a poetry book from 1920s anthology, The Golden Treasury of Longer Poems.
It includes Chaucer, Spenser, Marvell, Milton, Pope, Goldsmith, Burns, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Tennyson, Browning, Rossetti and Yeats! And it's in amazing condition for its age 😍
