As well as his many stories, Porges had written down the years scores of poems. Nearly all of these were published locally, in Monterey County newspapers and magazines, and are therefore not known to most readers of his fiction. Porges' poems tend to be idea-based, in the manner of Browning, or Hardy. His poems cover such human themes as mortality, loss and remembrance, as well as more cerebral reflections on time, history and the natural world. Like his stories, Porges' poems often touch on quite esoteric subjects. Some of his poems are playful and quirky; others are poignant. All are strong on ideas, and his very best poems are very fine works indeed. Spring, 1836: Selected Poems, is the title of a paperback collection of fifty-nine of Arthur Porges' best poems. This book was published in November 2008.
