Readymades (found poems.)

Readymades. These are poems that I find in the works of others. Small fragments that stand out as poems in themselves.

READYMADES

the nightingale who
with heart rendering voice …
(Sappho fragment)

in the bundle
of the living
(Dead Sea Scrolls)

I frequently tramped
eight or ten miles
through the deepest
snow to keep
an appointment with
a beech-tree
or a yellow-birch.
(Henry David Thoreau)

the sun is but
a morning star
(Henry David Thoreau)
