Autumn Sky Poetry - Number 4

Editor's Note - December 2006

The fourth issue of Autumn Sky Poetry brings the first year of my poetic experiment to a close. I began this journal in order to preserve my favorite poems online. Instead of simply giving away these poems to the online community, I find myself with the odd feeling of receiving a gift in return: the experience of becoming an editor and interacting with poets from all walks of life.

I’ve encountered poems I didn’t expect, and people I would never have met if I had simply kept to myself, reading and absorbing poetry alone. For that I am profoundly grateful. This issue is dedicated to all the contributors, past, present, and future. Thank you for the gift of your words.

It's all about the poetry.
—Sincerely yours,

Christine Klocek-Lim, Editor

Autumn Sky Poetry reserves the right to archive all poems published on this site indefinitely.


Reading poetry is a pleasure for which too few of us have the time to spare. My aim, as editor, is to make poetry as accessible as possible: simple pages, simple formatting, exquisite poetry.

Autumn Sky Poetry publishes four issues per year. Every issue contains ten poems by ten different poets. Each poem is one that caught my eye, held my attention, said something profound. The poets may hail from all across our lovely planet and their poems may speak in many different voices, but each one is worth savoring.
