Subject - Protest

Poetry is a fitting medium for words of protest. Strong emotions are stripped to their barest expression.

Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away. - 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.
