I find myself wanting to jot down lots of poetry lately, maybe because I’ve been reading Ted Kooser’s Poetry Home Repair Manual, a book my oldest daughter was getting rid of. I’m glad I rescued it. Of all the books about writing poetry that I’ve started to read, this is one of the few I finished. Kooser chooses wonderfully accessible poems to illustrate his advice, and his advice is spot-on. Who knew he was U.S. Poet Laureate from 2004-2006 and a Pulitzer Prize-winning author? I certainly didn’t. Poet laureate, I suspect, is an honor that goes mostly unrecognized. Peace to your ♥ !
