April Is National Poetry Month

Dear Readers,

In honor of National Poetry Month I have decided to deviate from my original planned posts to focus on poetry instead. Over the next several weeks I will be sharing some of my favorite poems and why they have special significance for me. I’m hoping that you will share some of your favorites in the comments and I’ll post them here as well.

In the meantime please check out the National Poetry Month Website which includes a list of 30 things you can do in honor of poetry month. Let me know if you do any of these. Some of my favorite suggestions are:

1.) Sign up for Poem-a-Day (I’ve already done this and it’s great!)

2.)Memorize a poem (good for the brain)

3.)Chalk a poem on the sidewalk (or the street for walkers in your neighborhood)

4.)Celebrate National Poem in Your Pocket Day on April 21,2016 (you’ll have to check out their website to find out how to do it!)

Please join me on this journey and let’s talk poetry!
