- One of the best poems I’ve written, in my opinion, is Die Erlkönigin. Back when I posted the poem I included links to videos dramatizing Goethe’s original – Der Erlkönig. My own poem is a retelling of Goethe’s. In the meantime, a new youtube video has been released that’s just incredible. Let me know what you think. Soon, I hope, I’ll have a post on EA Robinson’s The Sheaves.
