Poems with explanations: a list so far

As announced yesterday, M. Sakran has written a second book.  The book is called Understanding: poems with explanations and became available for pre-order this past Friday.  Pre-order your copy today!

Understanding: poems with explanations is a soon to be self-published collection of twenty original poems with explanations of each of them.

Readers of this blog will know that poems with explanations has been a regular category here on the blog.  So far, by M. Sakran’s count, there have been seventy four explained poems on this blog.  The idea was to help readers learn about poetry by providing an explanation of poems.

All of the poems with explanations that have been on the blog so far can be found here: poems with explanations.  There is also a list below with links to each one.  Read the ones you’d like to read.
