Sent by Susanne:
There are long, epic poems, and then there are concise, simple poems. Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) epitomized the simple form, living as she did a relatively small and simple life. For example:
“To make a prairie”
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
And then a website, The Writer’s Almanac, which features a poem a day.
