April is National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month and though I don't write it, I love to read it. Today, I thought I'd share some of my favorites:

A Blessing by James Arlington Wright

A Story by Li-Young Lee

Goodnight by Li-Young Lee

Battlefield by Mark Turcotte

Because You Asked About the Line Between Prose and Poetry by Howard Nemerov

The Meadow Mouse by Theodore Roethke

Keeping Things Whole by Mark Strand

Out, Out-- by Robert Frost

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost (stay gold, Ponyboy)

Do Not go Gentle Into That Good Night by Dylan Thomas

And I could go on and on . . .

So go rekindle your love for poetry (or find some new ones to love) and have a happy National Poetry Month!
