Poetry 180: A Poem a Day for American High Schools (Poetry and Literature Center, Library of Congress)

Poetry can and should be an important part of our daily lives. Poems can inspire and make us think about what it means to be a member of the human race. By just spending a few minutes reading a poem each day, new worlds can be revealed. Poetry 180 is designed to make it easy for students to hear or read a poem on each of the 180 days of the school year. I have selected the poems you will find here with high school students in mind. Listening to poetry can encourage students and other learners to become members of the circle of readers for whom poetry is a vital source of pleasure.

I had just consummated an unusually hearty dinner, of which the dyspeptic truffe formed not the least important item, and was sitting alone in the dining-room, with my feet upon the fender, and at my elbow a small table which I had rolled up to the fire, and upon which were some apologies for dessert, with some miscellaneous bottles of wine, spirit andliqueur. In the morning I had been reading Glover's "Leonidas," Wilkie's "Epigoniad," Lamartine's "Pilgrimage," Barlow's "Columbiad," Tuckermann's "Sicily," and Griswold's "Curiosities" ; I am willing to confess, therefore, that I now felt a little stupid.

I made effort to arouse myself by aid of frequent Lafitte, and, all failing, I betook myself to a stray newspaper in despair. "This folio of four pages, happy work Which not even critics criticise," when I felt my attention somewhat aroused by the paragraph which follows : "The avenues to death are numerous and strange.

Poems on Death

In me thou seest the twilight of such day As after sunset fadeth in the west, Which by and by black night doth take away, Death's second self, that seals up all in rest. In me thou see'st the glowing of such fire That on the ashes of his youth doth lie, As the death-bed whereon it must expire Consumed with that which it was nourish'd by. The Ankh: A Tribute to Thoth.

Click to enlarge Waiting for when the sun an hour or less Conveniently oblique makes visible The painting on one wall of this recess By Caravaggio, of the Roman School, I see how shadow in the painting brims With a real shadow, drowning all shapes out But a dim horse’s haunch and various limbs, Until the very subject is in doubt.


But evening gives the act, beneath the horse And one indifferent groom, I see him sprawl, Foreshortened from the head, with hidden face, Where he has fallen, Saul becoming Paul. O wily painter, limiting the scene From a cacophony of dusty forms To the one convulsion, what is it you mean In that wide gesture of the lifting arms? Magnetic Poetry Kids' Poetry Pages.

Do not stand at my grave and weep — Poet Seers. Mary Frye (November 13, 1905 – September 15, 2004) was a Baltimore housewife and florist, best known as the author of the poem ‘Do not stand at my grave and weep’, written in 1932.

Do not stand at my grave and weep — Poet Seers

She was orphaned at the age of three and moved to Baltimore when she was twelve. She was an avid reader with a remarkable memory. She married Claud Frye in 1927; he ran a clothing business while she grew and sold flowers. The poem for which she became famous was originally composed on a brown paper shopping bag. Because people liked her twelve-line, untitled verse, she made many copies and circulated them privately. The identity of the author of the poem was unknown until the late 1990s, when Frye revealed that she had written it.
