'Valentine's Day is the poet's holiday' - Ted Kooser
It's Valentines this week and what better way to celebrate than by posting love poems.
To begin with, who says Valentines have to be written for people? Ted Kooser brilliantly upends this idea in his collection of unusual and surprising 'Valentines.'
A New Potato - Ted Kooser
This is just one of the leathery eggs
the scuffed-up, dirty turtle of the moon
buried early in spring, her eyes like stars
fixed on the future, and, inside its red skin,
whiteness, like all of the moons to come,
and marvellous, buttered with light.
