This blog used to be called "Poem-a-Day," after my intention of posting a poem a day. Then it became "Poem-a-Fortnight," after my failure to post a poem a day and my intention to post a poem every two weeks. Henceforth it will be called "Gleanings" (until I call it something else). I'll be posting poems, passages from books I'm reading, excerpts from journal entries, observations about teaching, etc. I may post some fiction here, too. I'll try to post something every day, but forgive me in advance when I inevitably fail to do so.
