Theodore Roethke
mercy lordy heavens pow

Please understand that I have created this site out of a love for the poet. I'm a true fan of Roethke and his writings. What I am not is a poetry scholar or an English teacher. I cannot help you with your homework assignment. I cannot type up more poems and send them to you.

Why don't you tell me what poem touched you. Tell me that you enjoy the site that I have created. Tell me your interpretation of a line or stanza. Send me a link to more information about this awesome poet. Tell me that you learned something new today.

Please know that I do not answer email asking for me to interpret a poem or to help with school projects.

Having said all that -- I can be contacted at the following email address:

Thanks and happy reading!
