Welcome to Albert Goldbarth's "Library"!

Please! If you love books, you MUST have a look at this.

Welcome to Albert Goldbarth's "Library"!

It all started with a long poem by Albert Goldbarth, called "Library". Don't shy away from it being a "long poem" - it's very easy to read, there is no rhyme, no fixed rhythm, but it's fascinating.

Then Goldbarth invited other poets to add lines to his poem, and after that, all readers of poetry.com were invited to add lines of their own, too.

This description is very weak, I can see that. But you must see for yourselves. Please tell me what you think.

All the same - or because of that: Have pleasant holidays!
