April - National Poetry Month

For the past few years, I've celebrated National Poetry Month by posting a piece of poetry every day, during the month of April.

I'm going to continue the tradition this year.

You might see an old favorite here, or you may find a new poem/poet that stirs a little something.

Whichever it is, I hope you enjoy the pieces I choose.

If you have a poem you love that you'd care to share, I hope you'll do that in the comments.  (remember -  I have "comments" set to be moderated, so don't worry if you do not see your comment right away; you will).

“Inside this pencil
crouch words that have never been written
never been spoken
never been taught'
- W.S. Merwin

Poems are hard to read
Pictures are hard to see
Music is hard to hear
And people are hard to love
But whether from brute need
Or divine energy
At last mind eye and ear
And the great sloth heart will move.

-William Meredith
