Poet David Wagoner

I wanted to find a new poet. Just for fun.

I typed some random words into google, and it led me on and on. I settled on DW's work. I'd never heard of him before - at least not that I recognize - but he studied under Theodore Rothke who I like a lot.


I wanted to paste some of his poems here. But it looks like the best I can provide is some  links.

This one to The Words...

And this one to Words Above a Narrow Entrance

"Where light knocks down the trees,
And whatever spells you took
Before, you will take anew..."

Be sure to turn the page and read the last stanza. It's sort of funny to have to manipulate a magazine online to read poetry. Isn't it?
