Subject - Memorials

Poetry seems to be a natural way to capture some thoughts and memories we have about loved ones.

Poetry is the tracing of the trajectories of a finite sound to the infinite points of its echoes. - Carl Sandburg

The subject indexes are a wonderful way to browse Poets' Corner, leading you to works you might not find any other way. I hope also that they can help the site to seem less overwhelming than it might at first. If you have suggestions or comments about the Subject Indicies please contact Jon Lachelt.

The quotes from Carl Sandburg on the heading of some of the subject pages are from his book of poems, Good Morning America.
