Pass on a Poem

The site Pass on a Poem has a micro-site on Elizabeth Bishop, author of tomorrow's Poem of the Week (our second). Pass on a Poem also has an online anthology, news of events (mostly in London), a resources page which includes advice about reading out loud and learning poems by heart, and a subscription form to receive their own Poem of the Week by email.

Their home page quotes Emily Dickinson (pictured):

There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry--
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll--
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears the Human soul.
