As I was going through the Poetry Foundation website looking for this week's selection, I saw this poem and realized I'd never included it here before. Considering that "The Writer" is one of the first poems I ever loved, I find that hard to believe. Well, here it finally is. Enjoy!
The Writer, by Richard Wilbur
Note: You might have noticed that I'm posting this on a Monday instead of the usual Sunday. You see, I tend to be off doing more adventurous things (away from my computer) on Sundays this time of year. For this reason, Poem of the Week postings will take place on Mondays for the rest of the summer.
