April is National Poetry Month

We use poetry year 'round, whether remembering a snippet from a long ago memorized poem, or recognizing the poetry in our favorite songs. 

But in April we take time  to especially  remember and recognize poetry.   Poets, libraries, schools, booksellers and others join together to celebrate poetry and its role in our culture.

A website to visit for a good selection of poetry, searchable by poet and poem is www.

If you'd like to read some poems, look in the 811 non-fiction section for American poetry.
