Will you read my poem?

You are welcome to send me your poetry, but because there are thousands of aspiring poets and only one me, I limit myself to poets who aspire to write poetry that exploits meter and rhyme (or to readers who are regular visitors and contributors). No free verse, please. Also, be patient. I’m a builder, writer, parent and blogger. It takes time and effort to give you a fair and considerate reading. Beyond that, don’t expect much from me. I’m not buddies with other writers, agents or publishers. I’m not a member of poetry’s inner circle. I live in the middle of Vermont. The best that I can do is to encourage you or invite you over.
