Poetry Tips: Farewell Poems

I’ve noticed that some of my favorite websites are no longer “active” such as Read Write Poem. There are also friends who want to move away, relatives who I’ve lost touch with thanks to busy lives, etc. So that is the inspiration for this week’s idea of writing farewell poems. Maybe you are bidding farewell to a favorite restaurant, an old friend, a loved one who has passed, no matter how big or small, bidding farewell is part of life. Good luck to all who try it.

Please stop in next week…

Poems Found by Poet Hound
“Mr. Attila” by Carl Sandburg
“Funeral” by Michael Kozlowsky

Also, Hosho McCreesh sent out an e-mail regarding their book, Sunlight at Midnight, Darkness at Noon, as it is the book’s one year anniversary and there are more copies for sale, this is what Hosho sent:

“Memorial Day is the 1 year anniversary of SUNLIGHT AT MIDNIGHT, DARKNESS AT NOON.

"1 year anniversary", you say, "that's a little self-indulgent"--yeah, that's true. But there will likley be a sale of the book (in case you're interested in picking one up)--and we made this really fun book trailer to, hope you all enjoy this!

Our deepest thanks go out to Kim, who delivered on the sound design!”

Get a copy if you haven’t already, it’s available for half price and it’s an excellent book. I interviewed both Hosho McCreesh and Christopher Cunningham about this book, check those interviews out here on Poet Hound at:

Thanks for clicking in, please drop in tomorrow for more Open Submissions…
