A few years ago, on a lark, I added a few poems to my website. I like poetry quite a bit and keep copies of favorites. Last year, I went to a weekend poetry reading. For many years, I’ve been translating Rilke’s poetry.
I assumed few people cared about poetry, but I was surprised.
This morning, while checking my analytics, I looked at the data for the poems at my andreas.com website:
I was surprised to see how many people looked for and read these poems.
Go ahead. Read a few poems. Some of these are very good. By coincidence, my favorites have a cricket and a grasshopper.
