It has come to our attention that while The Poetry Department is deeply devoted to the sport of poetry, we may not have devoted adequate space to the poetry of sports. To make up for that oversight, here are some links (with special thanks to the Poetry Foundation, which has been more diligent in their reporting):
An assortment of BASEBALL poems collected by the Poetry Foundation.
A collection of BASKETBALL poems from the Poetry Foundation.
Poetry about FOOTBALL (U.S.) from the Poetry Foundation.
