In Robert Bly’s Hometown

remember the sound of your voice

reading my poem to the class

here something happens

poetry is making something happen

don’t be content with just words

make them leap off the page


dVerse prompt to write about or to a favorite poet. I visited Madison, Minnesota a few weeks ago and went to the little house where Robert Bly wrote and it contains much of his library.

  1. Good advice from him. Sounds like you’ve been a fan for a long time. I’m not familiar with his work but now I need to check him out.

    FYI, when I tried to get to your poem through Mr. Linky it was a blank page. I had to go directly to your home page to find it.
