When I Go Back to Poetry

Every so often, I discover a new poem, and then I’m hungry for poetry all over again. I gather stacks of poetry anthologies and go back to poetry. I find a new one from my favorite poet, A.R. Ammons, and I request the book, The Really Short Poems of A.R. Ammons.

I love this one from the collection.


~by A.R. Ammons

May happiness
pursue you,

catch you
often, and,

should it
lose you,

be waiting
ahead, making

a clearing
for you.
