Thursday Poetry Podcast: Shorter Modern Poems

Now with commentary! Don't panic, it's still only about 7 minutes long, and mostly poems.

Shorter Modern Poems: The Ones That Appeal to a 16-Year-Old

Today's poets:
Sara Teasdale
Louis Untermeyer
James Elroy Flecker
Victor Plarr

Edited to say: I got curious about the Plarr poem, and went to find out what "Citharistriae" means. It wasn't difficult; the first Google hit gave me this definition: "[Ancient Roman] Harpists. They were almost invariably prostitutes." So there you go.
