As the month continues, so does Poetry March Madness. The latest bracket matches include old favorites against contemporary slam poetry. Yesterday, in the Senior High, saw William Wordsworth’s “A Poison Tree” face off against Saul Williams “his dilemma”. After a very tight back and forth, “A Poison Tree” emerged victorious and will move on to the next round.

The Junior High match-up included Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s “How Do I Love Thee?” against Billy Collins’ “Walking Across the Atlantic”, which saw Collins’ “Walking” winning.

 

Today’s poems include, Lord Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty” versus Anne Sexton’s “Her Kind” in the Senior High. While Emily Dickinson’s “I’m Nobody! Who Are You?” and Anne Sexton’s “How To Eat A Poem” face-off in the Junior High.
