Welcome to my Poet Lady Chat Room. I would like to invite you to click on the chat box and type in a question, a suggestion, submit a poem, in other words – “chat with me.” I may, if you submit a poem, decide to feature it in my Poem of the Week section or, we may simply exchange ideas and suggestions about your poem.

This is a place to “talk” poetry with someone who has loved it all her life. I have a true passion for the possibilities of poetry and would love to hear your thoughts and/or read your poem. I will be happy to offer my reaction to your work and, based on over 40 years of teaching poetry, organizing, and conducting poetry workshops, working as a book review editor for an international poetry magazine, authoring five books of poetry and two textbooks on teaching poetry, send along my thoughts on ways to make your poem stronger and more impactful.

If you’re on my site, you have a connection to poetry. Feel free to connect with me – right here -right now, by typing your message into the “chat box” and clicking send. I’m waiting…

 

Your friend in poetry, Susan

A call in March,

By the honoring blooms,

A time to vanish wrath,

A time for foe and friends,

While strolling along whispering birds!

May we add the word "with" to the line - "While strolling along with whispering birds?"

Thank you for your speedy response!  Poetry is so important to us, as it speaks not only truth,but awareness, connection, and possibility.  In these troubled times, poetry is more important than ever.  With that one additional change, I will feature your poem on my website on 3/25/2022.  Please send along any "tags" you would like us to use.
