April is National Poetry Month!

Since 1996, people, libraries, and schools everywhere have been celebrating National Poetry Month.

It’s wonderful that we have a designated month to celebrate, but I know I couldn’t wait until once a year to read or write a poem. It’s just way to long. So grab a book to read (some favorites of mine are listed below) or find a pen and celebrate poetry now!

The Hell with Love: Poems to Mend a Broken Heart:  A reminder that poetry can be fun!

Love Poems from God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West: Beautiful, passionate poems.

100 Selected Poems: Just because I like e.e. cummings.

What We Carry: Real poems from a real (amazing) poet.

River of Stars: A wonderful collection of poems by our very own Vonnie Winslow Crist.
