A wonderful palmful of summer poems.

Tate Street

July is a rich time for poetry; a time for summer poems. We love the nostalgia of the heat, the summer camps, thunderstorms, the plenty of the farm, tanned legs, and even slugs.  Here are a few of our favorite summer poems.

It’s time to get writing.   What are your favorite poems of the warmest season?

    Thank you for sharing! What are some of your favorites? I’d love to read them

  2. I love Sharon Olds, I was able to see here recite live at my college in California. She is awesome.!

    • Sharon Olds and Dorianne Laux are two of my biggest influences. Thank you for commenting! I envy your listening/watching Olds read!

      • I could have wrote a poem about that. This small tiny framed women with long, straight hair, peppered black and grey read with a softly spoken tone. “The Solution” LOL! I will never forget that.

      • The Solution is a nice smack of reality about the passiveness of Americans and while Olds writes a tremendous amount of sex, she also writes pain with such exquisite frankness and innocence. I’ve been reading her ever since I received your comment and am now washed ashore, wrung out with grief, but needed to spend some time with her. Thank you.
