Happy end of the semester let’s write a blog for once day! Today’s short blog is on Bishop’s “The Riverman” and, in other news, I’m teaching a four week online course for Poetry Barn this June, “Beguiled & Bewildered: a Generative Poetry Workshop.”
If you can’t write a poem, post a blog: thoughts on Bishop’s poem, “The Armadillo” are up on the blog.
It’s been four months so I’m on schedule for another entry in the Bishop Blogs! Check out “Song for the Rainy Season.”
