Fall in Love with Poetry Through your Star Sign!

On certain days, I find that poetry is our most overlooked section.

But the truth is, I do understand why. Poetry is often a hit or miss experience. It’s quite like accompanying someone on a walk through the crevices of their mind. It can take a real leap to connect with a poet or a poem—almost like forming an actual relationship with that person. But how do you know who you’re going to connect with? And what if you do pick up a book of poetry but you just don’t feel that spark? That’s why compatibility is key!

For that reason, I’ve created a list that matches your astrological sign with your most compatible poetry mates. Do peruse and give it a try!


1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)

If you're an Aries, you might...

...delight in this incredible collection: The Poetry of Derek Walcott, 1948-2013, which will likely become your inspiring Capricorn friend for a long time to come.

...draw inspiration from the latest release of Envelope Poems by the Sagittarius poet,Emily Dickinson then write your own meanderings down on scrap paper and envelopes.

...check out Gemini poet Gwendolyn Brooks’ riveting poem: “An Aspect of Love, Alive in the Ice and Fire."
