What did you learn today?

I've admired poetry from afar.  With my new coursera class, Modern and Contemporary American Poetry, I'm hoping that will change.

The first poem assigned:

I dwell in Possibility

I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars –
Impregnable of eye –
And for an everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation – This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –

Want to delve in deeper?
