The PWB Poetry Collection- June, 2008

This is a new feature at PWB. I’m not sure for how many months it will last.

The idea is to list twenty poems, from different bloggers on our blogroll, that I have found enjoyable.They are not listed in any particular order. Do not submit poems to me for this feature.

Please check out some of these poems and leave comments. If there is a positive response to this then I will try to keep it going throughout the end of the year, at least. If there is no response then it will be onward to other ways to try and promote poetry in the blogosphere. Since this took a few hours to put together I won't be countinuing it unless the members here find it a worthwhile way to discover new poets.

Thank you for visiting PWB today.

Hey, thanks for including one of my poems here, I'm glad you liked it, but more than that, I appreciate this round-up of poems. That was a lot of work for you to do, and I intend to take advantage of it by reading all these poems!

This is a great idea. I like that you select the poems to create this collection. It puts poems that we all may not have seen on eachother's blogs right in front of us. Thank you so much for including my poem.

Gone through the poems. Great works.One good thing, it introduces the poets blog so one can read more of their poetry.

Thanks for including my poem though am still working on my craft. As they say, write is part of rewrite!

Thanks for commenting and thank you to everyone who took time to read some of the poems.

I will post another collection at the end of July.

Cool idea, Sara. It gives me an excuse to go check out not only these poems but the blogs of these poets. Sometimes I forget to wander through the folks in the blogroll.

I don't want you to burn yourself out doing this, but I would enjoy any other collections you put together.

Thanks for all your comments. I'm going to give month two a try and hope it workds out just as well.
