Remember, this is just for fun and is not meant to be stressful.
Keep in mind what Molly Peacock’s book suggested.
Look at a line, a stanza, sentences, and images; describe what you like or don’t like; and offer an opinion. If you missed my review of her book, check it out here.

Here’s today’s stop on the 2014 National Poetry Month Blog Tour: Reach for the Horizon
Today’s poem is from New European Poets edited by Wayne Miller and Kevin Prufer:
Walls by Lindita Arapi of Albania (page 126) And if a wall, long and thick, A high wall Should rise in front of you . . . What would you do? I would close my eyes, I would crouch And rest my cheek against it, I would find peace in its cool serenity. And if this wall were death . . . -translated from the Albanian by Robert Elsie
