The Best Poetry of 2017: A Look Back

by Philip F. Clark

As we end the year, we can be thankful for its bounty of excellent poetry. As we enter the New Year, we can be hopeful for more. Here, a selection of some of the best. And with that, my sincere wish to each of you — whether you have published your first, or your fifteenth collection — my hope that 2018 holds every success and joy for you in words.

Happy New Year, from The Poet’s Grin.
