National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month when the Academy of American Poets helps us to stop and take note, appreciate and discover poetry. Throughout American poetry is celebrated with readings, events, activities for students, encouragement to write your own poetry and it ends with Poem in Your Pocket Day (April 30).  Whatever you do, or wherever you live spend some time during this month reading, writing, reciting poetry. Find a poetry slam. Or if you can’t find one get some of your friends together and have your own. If you want to find out more go HERE or check out some of the many links here in Poetry and Poetry Month tags. There are lots of good poems. No, make that lots of great poems. Some serious, some funny, some deeply thought provoking, some just plain silly. And stop by the rest of the month for some new and interesting poems.

Whatever you do enjoy some poems!
