THE DAILY POEM PROJECT, WEEK TWELVE
Here are the poems to vote for in week twelve, the final week of my Daily Poem Project (the poems on Poetry Daily from Monday, June 11, to Sunday, June 17):
78. Two Poems, by Tessa Rumsey (vote for both poems as a unit)
79. Don't Write History as Poetry, by Mahmoud Darwish, trans. Fady Joudah
80. What Knits, by Paul Celan, trans. Ian Fairley
81. Bucolics III, by Maurice Manning (only the first poem)
82. Lightfall, by Pamela Alexander
83. Ars Poetica, by Henrietta Goodman
84. Tobacco, by Peg Boyers
This is the last week of the Project. When I post the results of this week, I will also post a call for votes to pick the final winner. That post will, of course, include a linked list of all the finalists.
You can send your vote to me by email or as a comment on the blog. If you want to vote by commenting but do not want your vote to appear on the blog, you just have to say so in your comment (I moderate all comments). In any case, I will not post the comments until after the final vote is in (secret ballot). You may vote by the title, the author's name, or the number of the poem in the list above. Please make a final decision and vote for only one poem (although it is always interesting to see people's lists).
Please VOTE BY THURSDAY, JUNE 21! But I will still accept votes as long as I have not posted the final results, which might only be on June 22 or 23.
If you want to receive an email announcing the results, send me your email address with your vote (if you have a public blogger profile, I can usually find it).
Week 11 results are here. Week 10 results are here. A summary of the results of the first nine weeks is at the end of the week 9 results.
