The Fourth Daily Poem Project, Week 10 results


Well, it took me a while to get to it, but here it is:

The winner of week ten of my fourth Daily Poem Project is Night. Fire, by Elaine Sexton, which received 4 votes out of 12 cast. Two poems tied for second with three votes: Grandmother, by Valzhyna Mort (tr. by the author, Elizabeth Oehlkers Wright and Franz Wright), and Treason, by James Tate. I think that was the closest vote yet!

My thanks to everyone who voted. I'll be posting the call for votes for week eleven in a few minutes.
