POEM OF THE MONTH

Dear poets, dear readers, dear citizens:

In my tenure as the 7th Parliamentary Poet Laureate, I will curate the Poem of the Month as a “Gallery” space, to showcase the diversity of poetry being written by Canadians currently. I remain focused on featuring marginalized and/or under-represented voices, schools, and aesthetics. I hope that you will find the selected poems/poets compelling, inspiring, and exemplary. I also hope that you will seek out their works and read further or perhaps be moved to try writing in a similar style. I appreciate truly your eyes on this site.

Truly,

George Elliott Clarke, OC, ONS, PhD
7th Parliamentary Poet Laureate
