“I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree.”
Written in 1913, this poem by Joyce Kilmer has often been criticized as too simple, too insipid, too sentimental, and not lovely at all. Yet it lives on…and on…and on. Such is the power of even “bad” poetry.
Do you have a favorite poem, one that you’ve read or maybe even written yourself? Please share it with other Humanists at our Fifth Annual Poetry Forum.
We are taking sign-ups at the greeters table. For more information contact Sena Havasy at email@example.com.
This program was the annual opportunity for all who wished to read their own poetry or just poetry they enjoyed sharing. Most of the poems were originals although several were favorites by other authors.
