10 recordings of poems.

It’s National Poetry Month. I am of the mind that poetry is best heard, so here you go:

1. Edwin Morgan, “The Loch Ness Monster’s Song” [Hnwhuffl!]

2. Sarah Kay, “B” [I love this so much]

3. Galway Kinnell, “The Waking” [recited by one Taylor Mali]

4. e.e. cummings, “little tree”

5. Karsten Piper, “To the Future Husband of my Wife”

6. Elizabeth Bishop, “Roosters” [read by the poet]

7. Billy Collins, “Litany” [recited by a toddler!]

8. Lewis Carroll, “Jabberwocky” […this one has Muppets]

9. Pablo Neruda, “Love Sonnet 17” [previously featured at this blog]

10. William Shakespeare, “Sonnet 29”
