The Poetry of Robert Frost
Some of the earliest poetry I read, and still some of my favorite.
Treasury of French Love
I love that this book has French poems with the English translation on the facing page. Beautiful!
Alive Together by Lisel Mueller
I discovered this poet in college and absolutely love her style. Last year during National Poetry Month, I did a Poetry Spotlight on her.
A Little Treasury of American Poetry
This book was my self-taught introduction to poetry growing up. Edited by Oscar Williams and published in 1952.
A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein
I read these poems now and they seem ridiculous and gross, but back in the day, I loved them.
