New Poetry in Motion Poster on the N Train


STRANGER! If you, passing, meet me, and desire to speak to me,

why should you not speak to me?

And why should I not speak to you?

-----Walt Whitman

The Poetry Foundation has a great article on the Poetry in Motion series up on their website here.

Listen: "Just Beyond the Fare Boxes" (mp3), a short (6-7 minute) podcast about the series in New York, and commuters read and respond to the two poems that have been posted all Summer, Auden's "O Tell Me the Truth About Love" and Yeats' "Sailing to Byzantium" (excerpt).
