National Poetry Month

It’s the U.S. National Poetry Month (I think the U.K. has it in October?). I always have great intentions, and I always end up writing a post in late April that begins “I always have great intentions….” I haven’t come up with so much as a haiku. But I have been retweeting poems that I see and like on Twitter, so I’ll share them here. Most are images of the text of the poems, which is how the whole poem fits in a Tweet.

April 20 – Advice, by Langston Hughes

April 11 – Endymion, by Roz Kaveney

April 9 – In the Library, by Charles Simic

March 5 – Red Brocade, by Naomi Shihab Nye

February 17 – The Mower, by Philip Larkin


About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
