A poem is like a butterfly. A moment seeds itself inside us. A memory. An experience when we saw, we felt, perhaps even, we knew. There is a poet in all of us. However unknown or neglected that part of us may be, it is there, often just waiting for the right conditions to present themselves. Jay Ramsay presents a workbook which guides you into writing poetry—a unique exploration and synthesis between poetry and personal development. Specially designed for people who may be longing to write, as well as those who already are, Ramsay's particular gift is to teach poetry primarily from inspiration and imagination rather than intellectual technique.

Sometimes it seems like there are as many definitions of poetry as there are poems. Coleridge defined poetry as “the best words in the best order.” St. Augustine called it “the Devil’s wine.” For Shelley, poetry was “the record of the best and happiest moments of the happiest and best minds.” But no matter how you define it, poetry has exercised a hold upon the hearts and minds of people for more than five millennia. That’s because for the attentive reader, poetry has the power to send chills shooting down the spine and lightning bolts flashing in the brain — to throw open the doors of perception and hone our sensibilities to a scalpel’s edge. Poetry For Dummies is a great guide to reading and writing poems, not only for beginners, but for anyone interested in verse. From Homer to Basho, Chaucer to Rumi, Shelley to Ginsberg, it introduces you to poetry’s greatest practitioners. It arms you with the tools you need to understand and appreciate poetry in all its forms, and to explore your own talent as a poet. Discover how to: Understand poetic language and forms Interpret poems Get a handle on poetry through the ages Find poetry readings near you Write your own poems Shop your work around to publishers Don’t know the difference between an iamb and a trochee? Worry not, this friendly guide demystifies the jargon, and it covers a lot more ground besides, including: Understanding subject, tone, narrative; and poetic language Mastering the three steps to interpretation Facing the challenges of older poetry Exploring 5,000 years of verse, from Mesopotamia to the global village Writing open-form poetry Working with traditional forms of verse Writing exercises for aspiring poets Getting published From Sappho to Clark Coolidge, and just about everyone in between, Poetry For Dummies puts you in touch with the greats of modern and ancient poetry.

You Are My Joy and Pain

These are not love poems in the abstract—the richness with which Madgett writes hints at the firsthand experience of a lifetime of loving.

You Are My Joy and Pain is Naomi Long Madgett’s latest and possibly most endearing poetry collection. Bill Harris, a 2011 Kresge Foundation Eminent Artist, said of the book, "Even with the evidence of over a half-century or more of first-rate poetic artistry by Madgett, this collection is a breath-arresting surprise and delight. Poem-by-poem and section-by-section amaze. Each poem in the collection is a master class in technique and in her ability to transpose an idea into a tightly composed example of the craft of poetry." You Are My Joy and Pain receives its name from the Billie Holiday song "Don’t Explain" and is divided into three parts. The first part, "A Promise of Sun," contains fourteen poems relating to the hopeful and joyful beginning of a new relationship. The second part, "Trinity: A Dream Sequence," consists of twenty poems with religious imagery and encompasses both the beginning and the end of a relationship. The third part, "Stormy Weather," includes thirty-two poems that relate to the heartbreaking experience of a love gone wrong. These are not love poems in the abstract—the richness with which Madgett writes hints at the firsthand experience of a lifetime of loving. While several anthologies of love poems exist in the world, it is rare to find a single-author collection that so closely examines love in all of its messy and beautiful layers. Readers will identify with the hope and disappointment that Madgett presents in these poems.

To lose someone you love through death is tragic. Losing someone you love-your soul mate and best friend-via an ambiguous and unexpected text message is devastating; it can destroy your soul. When you lose a loved one, you go through the process of grieving that enables you to accept their loss and eventually let go. When the person you love severs you from their life and walks away without offering an explanation, how can you do the same? How can you understand and accept the loss so that you can move on with your life? "Forever Love" is a collection of poetry that considers the process of rebuilding a life after such a callous and devastating loss. The fourth volume in a series, it explores how author Vicki Case worked through this dark period in her life, searching for closure and answers to her questions. In the midst of her grief, she discovered the power of the written word in healing and began composing poetry that reflected the raw emotions she was experiencing. "Forever Love" contains soul-revealing and vividly honest descriptions of her emotions as she looked for a way to move beyond the hurt and devastation of a love lost.

This volume is about the type of work that poets perform and why it matters. Challenging the divide between inspired poetic production and other apparently lesser and contingent forms of labor, this book considers the poetry of Walt Whitman the real estate dealer, Herman Melville the customs inspector, and Hart Crane the copywriter.

Poems for You and Me is a collection of poems, most of which were written through the year 2019. These simple poems address everyday subjects that are close to the poet’s heart. They provide a glimpse into the poet’s life journey, and along the way they reflect the poet’s views on life, death, love, loss, wealth, health, faith, values, friends, foes, joys, sorrows, dreams, hopes and everything in between. There are even poems about poems. There is also commentary about the state of our world, the hypocrisy of people, countries and religions, and the vanity of mankind. And there is some fun stuff too. The hallmark of these poems is their simplicity, which makes them at once accessible and memorable for everyone who reads them.
