April 9th: "One Art"

“One Art,” by Elizabeth Bishop


This one was suggested by my friend Ursula on my last post as another example of a love poem that isn’t revealed to be a love poem until the end. I really like it!

One thing I love about Elizabeth Bishop is that her poems often rhyme. I don’t at all require poetry to rhyme, as I’m sure you can tell from my previous selections, but I do really enjoy it when it’s there.
