Poetry: Five Poems for Spring

Spring is finally here, bringing with it moody weather, the end-of-semester crunch, and, of course, the color green! If you’re feeling the season, or if you want to be, here are five spring-themed poems to read:

 

 

1. “A Light Exists in Spring” by Emily Dickinson. A poem that illuminates that special feeling of springtime.

2. “It is a Spring Afternoon” by Anne Sexton. This image-rich poem is signature Sexton.

3. “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” by William Wordsworth. A poem about the beauty of spring daffodils.

4. “Second Spring” by Audre Lorde. A different take on the season.

5. “Spring is like a perhaps hand” by E.E. Cummings. A classic from one of the masters.
