On NPR's Saturday Morning Edition I heard the host, Scott Simon, interview a poet named Edward Hirsch. (Click here and you can hear it too.)
Together they read a poem by someone named William Matthews. I guess it's called "the four subjects of poetry" Here it is:
"1. I went out into the woods today, and it made me feel, you know, sort of religious.
And I thought - "Yes, that was perfectly expressed. It explains exactly why I don't like poetry."
For no apparent reason I've illustrated the poem with photos from our December 2004 trip to Mexico.
