This past Saturday, Dodge Poetry Staff spent the day with the 11 Dodge Poets who will be leading Spring & Fountain sessions all across New Jersey starting this month. For this meeting, we all get back to the heart of the Spring & Fountain model – the pleasure of being read to.
Dodge Poets and Poetry staff approach the meeting the same way that a teacher would experience a Spring & Fountain session — we all bring 4 poems or excerpts, and choose one to share aloud. It’s a rejuvenating day for us and the poets, and we all come away with a giant packet of great poems to take home; some which are new to us, and some that are renewed by hearing them read by others. It’s a treat!
We want to share the poems that were chosen and read on Saturday. We’re always surprised by the poems that are shared. We hope they will be a nice read for you as well. Enjoy!
