Subject - Parting

A parting seems to bring strong emotions and that generally yields good poetry... or at least poetry that elicits strong emotions from the reader also.

Poetry is the establishment of a metaphorical link between white butterfly-wings and the scraps of torn up love-letters. - 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.
