Today’s poet is S.M. Boyce. You know her as “author” S.M. Boyce, on the blog. She’s written the Grimoire Saga (which is one of my favorite series of all time) and Ari, the first in her To Each His Ghost series. There’s also a new series in the works, but you’ll have to wait until there’s more to share about that. The reason I get to call her a poet is because, aside from her novels, she published a poem last year. It came out near the end of April and you might remember me sharing it. You may even saw my review.
This year, I get to share that poem again. This year, I get to share that poem again in a more intimate way. Boyce was kind enough to let me share an audio recording she made of the poem. If you know anything about me and my views on poetry, you know that it’s not just about the words on the page, but the way a piece is read. And two people can read the work differently, even from the same text. Meaning can be altered and enhanced. Maybe you read this poem before and now, after listening, you’ll take something different away from it. I hope you do. And I encourage you to read poetry aloud, as well as silently. Experiment with it. It can be a fun exercise.
I’ll share links on where you can get the text for Boyce’s poem below the audio. She’s been generous enough to publish it for free on all the major ebook retail stores, so be sure to grab it. Maybe even leave a review once you’re done.
