Welcome to Sunday Poetry. If this is your first visit you can read about the purpose and inspiration of my Sunday poetry blogs here.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day, I’ve picked a romantic poem that tells the story of a young man searching for his beloved. As you read “The Exchange,” by Ron Rash, remember how you found your beloved — or how he or she found you.
I wish for you a loving Valentine’s Day, and if that’s not a possibility, one with happy memories.
Remember, we read poetry together here for the pure pleasure of the experience. There are no quizzes, no right ways to read or contemplate the poem we share. Absolutely no dissecting allowed. Just come along for the “read.” What line, word or thought will you carry with you this week? If you’d like to tell us where the poem took you? We’ll listen.
