A Poem a Day review (Part 5 and final) – October 2017 – December 2017

This is part five of my review of the Poem a Day series, bringing it up to the present and the conclusion of the series.

October, November and December of 2017, with  3 pieces from each month highlighted.

I hope the poems have brought some variety and pleasure into the reading life of those who have tuned in to some or all of these posts.

Thank you for reading them. Without readers, there is no point.
