National Poetry Month: Poem of the Day

Our final poem of the day for this month is Volkswagon Song by Sheila Martindale.

“You overtook me on the highway
and took me by surprise
I did not know you were behind me
until your eighteen-wheel transporter
roared by my left flank scattering
gravel dust-clouds and my complacency…”

Born in England, Ms. Martindale immigrated to Canada in 1966, where she lived in and around Montreal. After the October Crisis, she has moved to Elgin County, Ontario, where she now works a series of different occupations to support her poetry.

National Poetry Month: Poem of the Day

Our poem of the day for today is: Saturday Walking by Noah Leznoff.

“Walking the street
covered in simplicity like air
like rain-thick wind humming
and no nothing tired,
but a road moved healthily under me
and the wind made a sail of my shirt…”

Born in Montreal, Mr. Leznoff’s first work appeared in Mad Angels and Amphetamines, and received Honourable Mention for the First Annual Bronwen Wallace Award. He currently lives in Markham, Ontario.

 

National Poetry Month: Poem of the Day

Our poem of the day for today is: Highway 10 by Sophia Kaszuby.

“Tonight along Highway 10,
the evening will release the trees from the heat,
open the deep dark avenue of cool shadows,
and the line of cars will follow each other
deeper into the hard beautiful land up north…”

Born in Europe, Ms Kaszuby grew up in Northern Ontario. She currently works as a librarian at the University of Toronto.  She has been published in academic journals on educational technology and the history of medicine.
