Take a Poem, Leave a Poem

Rusty Pennies

I've been inspired by the "take a penny, leave a penny" jar at the local deli.

Poems in the jar today:


Please take at least one, and please leave a story or a poem in it's place in the comments section.

Happy reading! Andrea

  1. I took "Crush," and I'm leaving "One Sparrow in a Flock of Sparrows from Here On" by Sheila Squillante in its place: http://typomag.com/issue05/squillante.html.
    Enjoy!

  3. What an awesome idea.

  5. "The Writer" by Richard Wilbur. Perfect for orienting me again to my students this time of year. :) Great idea!

  8. I am DYING over "Crush". Poetry gets to me so deeply in such a short time, it's like nothing else. Just what I needed on a multi hour bus ride
