The Lists That Started It All . . . Continued . . .

I have continued my journey through Kailana's lists of poems, determined to complete both lists and share the poetry on them with you.

Below are the poems I had left after my first post, and my final tally. The ones I have read are crossed off, and those I have not yet found are listed in bold.

There is a total of 7 poems I was unable to find. (But I'm sure it's only a matter of time.) I do, however, declare this challenge at an end. It has been a great experience because of the many new poets and poems to which I have been introduced, as well as all the old friends with which I had the chance to become reacquainted.

Of course, the poems on these lists have been showing up on the blog as I've found and read them.
