I can’t resist. I’m back to post about poetry and only about poetry from now until Resurrection Sunday. After that, it’ll be back to poetry plus whatever else I post here: mostly book reviews and random thoughts.
Today is the first day of April and the first day of Poetry Month.
Why have a month devoted to poetry?
It sounds like fun to me.
And to these other bloggers:
Farm School’s National Poetry Month 2009: Essential Pleasures
Gregory K. at GottaBook gives us Thirty Poets/Thirty Days. Every day in April he’s posting a previously unpublished poem by a different poet. Today, April 1, he starts out with a poem by Jack Prelutsky: A Little Poem for Poetry Month.
Sylvia Vardell of Poetry for Children is posting “a poetry-book-review-a-day on new 2009 poetry books for kids, with sample poems, activities for kids, and poet interview tidbits.”
Wild Rose Reader is celebrating with book giveaways and spring acrostic poems and who know waht else.
Anastasia Suen invites all “K-12 students to write their own school poems and send them to me so I can post them on this blog.”
More later . . . I have to go drive the taxi. If you’ve posted about Poetry Month, leave a comment and I’ll link to you later.
