The Sixth Daily Poem Project, Week Eleven Call for Votes


Here are the poems to vote for in the eleventh week of the sixth Daily Poem Project (the poems on Poetry Daily from Monday, May 10, to Sunday, May 16):

May 16: Woodpile, by Beth Bachmann (vote only on the first poem)
May 15: Voices from the Corners of the Sky, by Barbara Ras
May 14: Seasonal Anxiety, by A. E. Stallings
May 13: La Bouderie, by Allison Benis White
May 12: With God in the Morning, by Aliki Barnstone
May 11: Interpretation, by Martha Ronk
May 10: The Winds, by Albert Goldbarth

HOW TO VOTE: You can send your vote to me by email or as a comment on the blog (or as a comment to my Facebook link to this call for votes). 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 on my blog). If you want to vote anonymously, that's okay, but please choose some sort of pseudonym so I can keep track of different votes by anonymous voters. I will post comments as they come in.

Please make a final decision and vote for only one poem (although it is always interesting to see people's lists).

Please VOTE BY SATURDAY, MAY 22! But I will still accept votes as long as I have not posted the final results.

Feel free to pass on this call for votes to anyone who might be interested!

With God in the Morning.

Runners-up: La Bouderie (which reminds me of a poem I wrote years ago) & Season Anxiety (which has such neat imagery).

I can never get enough of A. E. Stallings, and we discussed "Seasonal Anxiety" in class on Thursday, and it paid back our close attention so well that I am happy to be able to vote for it!
