Boston’s about to bust a rhyme.

Dozens of prominent poets, including a former U.S. poet laureate, will commandeer the courtyard of the Boston Public Library on Thursday to read aloud from the city’s first anthology of poetry.

Organizers have dubbed the collection “City of Notions,” a reference to a nickname that Boston earned in the early 19th century for being a font of innovation and ideas.

Boston poet laureate Danielle Legros Georges, who edited the collection, sees it as “a meeting place, a poetic ‘city square’ for a wide variety of voices.”

Among the nearly 60 contributors is Robert Pinsky, a former U.S. poet laureate who now teaches English and creative writing at Boston University.
