How to read short poetry

A great post by Frank Prem on short poetry, together with some suggestions concerning how to read in front of an audience. I also am a fan of short poems, and many of my own encompass less than a page.

Hope you enjoy.

    That was an interesting post, Kevin. Thanks for sharing it.
    One thing I’ve noticed is that, when reading poetry aloud, people adopt a particular voice. Personally, I find this distracting. It’s often more a drone. Why do they do that?

      You are welcome for the share, Vivienne. I agree that some people adopt a drone when reciting their work. I hope I do not do so. but only those who have listened to me read know the answer to that! Best wishes. Kevin
