National Poetry Month


  1. Thanks for alerting me to Poetry Month. I will have to find a book of poems to read in the coming weeks.

    I do find reading poetry an incredibly personal immersion, so perhaps that accounts for my "fussiness" when it comes to it. Of course I can appreciate any well-written poetry, same as I can appreciate a painting, even if it is not for my taste. I just enjoy the experience more if I identify with the poet.

    1. I have favorite poets, including Dylan Thomas, John Donne, T.S. Eliot, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, but I also love seeing teenagers who find poetry as an outlet. :)
