April is the most poetic month . . .


National Poetry Month. April.  Good stuff.

Farmschool lists great stuff going on, including Gottabook’s 30 Poets/30 Days.  “A Little Poem for Poetry Month.

Are you subscribed to Poem-A-Day?

Have you asked your city to issue a proclamation?  No?  Get the proclamation and start lobbying!

Get ready for Poem in Your Pocket Day (April 30).

History teachers will crack out the “Concord Hymn” and tell the story of Paul Revere, of course.  Maybe a little Joyce Kilmer to reveal the tragedy of World War I, or “Death of the Ball Turret Gunner” depending on how far the world history or U.S. history courses are.

What are you going to do for National Poetry Month?
