The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine, is an independent literary organization committed to a vigorous presence for poetry in our culture. It exists to discover and celebrate the best poetry and to place it before the largest possible audience.
What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore— And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over— like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?
Maya Angelou. My favorite is Phenomenal Woman. Have you read it? If you are female, you know you have it/do it and that you have since you were a little girl. A true genius who can put that on paper for everyone to understand. :) "It’s the fire in my eyes, And the flash of my teeth, The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet."
Poetry Foundation is a wonderful web resource for anyone interested in, studying, or just wanting to enjoy poetry. The site has information, tons of poems, searchable content, interviews and information on poets, and more. This is a great place for people of all ages to come and learn about different types of poetry.
