The Sixth Daily Poem Project, Week Nine Call for Votes


Here are the poems to vote for in the ninth week of the sixth Daily Poem Project (the poems on Poetry Daily from Monday, April 26, to Sunday, May 2):

May 2: The Fever, by Kimiko Hahn (vote only on the first poem)
May 1: Fin, by Wyn Cooper
April 30: What Was Missing, by Susan Tichy
April 29: Another June & Journey, by Steven Heighton
April 28: Fire, by C. K. Williams (vote only on the first poem)
April 27: Arcadian, by Dan Beachy-Quick
April 26: Pussy Willow, by Paula Bohince

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 8! But I will still accept votes as long as I have not posted the final results (which I will do by Sunday, May 9, at the latest).

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

I'm going with Arcadian.Even though it is a complete rip-off of Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening,and even though it has a terrible ending---it had so much promise.Still,I like it.

As for me, my favorite is "The Fever", a deft use of the villanelle (more what I would have expected from CK Williams perhaps).
