Poetry Sound: poetry podcast #2

I’m back again with a second poetry podcast! (You can listen to the first one here)

This podcast is about my love of the sound of poetry and two poems that mark my history with this written art form. Here are links to the two poems I talk about in the podcast:

“The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T.S. Eliot
“Song for a Lady” by Anne Sexton

So pull up a chair, get yourself a cup of something hot (or cold if you’re in the southern hemisphere), and enjoy!


Please let me know if you have any technical difficulties!
Thanks for listening!

    You DID do another one! These are both beautiful poems, and thanks for introducing me to Song for a Lady. I love the ending line “as you knead me and I rise,” in part, because, of course, there’s the double meaning of “as you need me and I rise.” The imagery in both of these is so potent. Thanks, again, for talking about the poems as well as reading them.

    Oh Nicole. It’s like having poetry night in my kitchen in Philadelphia! Please do more of these, I love them. I love all three of the poems you chose and I love hearing you read them out loud. If only I could pick some to read back to you and I and all of your readers could contribute one . . .
