Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

Merry Christmas. This year brings an interesting grab bag of links to Christmas articles and poetry. We begin with the Robert Frost Holiday Cards collection at Dartmouth College. This is followed in our News at Eleven section by an article on Adelaide Procter, which contains her poem A Christmas Carol.

In Great Regulars, Bryan Appleyard has a blog post for us called Christmas Continues. Shannon Doyne pairs Thomas Hardy's The Oxen with a New York Times story called The Christmas "Maniac". Carol Ann Duffy has a new poem out called Wenceslas and Ted Kooser shares his Christmas Mail. Our Garrison Keillor links lead us to a few Christmas poems, one called Waiting on the Corners by Donald Hall. Wesley McNair brings us an old favorite. And both Carol Rumens and Christopher Nield's write about and share a seasonal poem apiece.

It's not all about Christmas. We have many poetry articles in between as well.

Congratulations to the poets who wrote the November InterBoard Poetry Community winners! And thanks to our esteemed judge Polina Barskova, whose commentary follows each poem:

First place: Rain Taxi by Bernard Henrie, of PenShells
Second place: Experimenting with Molotov Cocktails by Steve Meador, of FreeWrights Peer Review
Third place: I don't by Michael Virga, of The Writers Block

Thanks for clicking in.
