Poetry Cream

Ralph Murre, proprietor of Little Eagle Press located in Wisconsin's Door County, is publishing a sort of "best of" poetry presented in an attractive online format that offers re-runs of previously published outstanding and accessible poetry. Each poem has an illustration or photo provided by the poet or Murre himself. Murre is an incredible and accomplished line-drawing artist (as evidenced by the artwork brightening this entry). RE / VERSE is a blog publication, which means new additions are posted when available after Murre's critical editorial review. The nine poems, which are posted thus far, are earthy, sensual, and.... at times titillating, which may make some titter and blush. I like the fact that thematically the poems flow comfortably from one to another—as though they appear in a well-edited anthology. The literary critic in me hopes that Murre holds the course and continues to add poems that can co-exist with the outstanding collection he's assembled so far.
