Celebrate National Poetry Month

Did you know that April is National Poetry Month? Shower your mundane world with splashes of delight and joy through the language of poetry! Come on! Indulge yourself! What’s your mood?
For laughter, try The Old Dog Barks Backward or The Best of Ogden Nash by Ogden Nash; I’m too Young to be Seventy: and other Delusions by Judith Viorst
For fun, how about Poemcrazy: Freeing your Life with Words or Wham! It’s a Poetry Jam!
For inspiration, try the Persian poets Hafiz and Rumi: The Subject Tonight is Love or Rumi: Gardens of the Beloved
Come visit upstairs and sample original poems by local poets, too! Browse through the poetry section to find your favorite poet!

Also read Pablo Neruda for achingly beautiful poems about love.
