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.

Who Are Your Favorite Poets?

Just when you think spring can’t get any better, you look on your calendar (well…at least on my calendar!) to discover April marks the beginning of National Poetry Month, a time dedicated to celebrating and recognizing poems and poets. Since poetry has a special place near and dear to my heart, I thought I might share links to a few books that I think are great! What are your favorite books, and who are your favorite poets? Why? Leave a comment!
