Wonderful way to enjoy (or be introduced to) great poetry
If you've got five minutes, you've got time to hear a great poem, read well. That's what you get every weekday from host Tracy K. Smith, US Poet Laureate. More than that, you also get a short and sonorous personal essay, reflections on the theme addressed by each episode's poem. There's a great breadth of poetry included here, both contemporary and classic, from poets of every style and stripe. Well worth a listen.
