This is the city you most loved, an empty stairwell
where the next rain lifts invisibly from the Seine.
With solitude, your coat open, you walk
steadily as if the railings were there and your hands weren’t passing
through them.” —Carolyn Forche, Elegy (via lydianea)
Starting April 1, we’ll be asking all of you to contribute a line of poetry of no more than 140 characters based on our word of the day. You can send us your line on Facebook or Twitter. At the end of the month, we’ll combine every single line submitted into one piece of poetry. The poem will be published on our blog, and we’ll also list all of our participants!
Learn more about National Poetry Month here.
We look forward to your submissions! Happy rhyming!
