5 Reasons Why I Love National Poetry Month

1. I get to announce to everyone, all month long, in a gleeful voice, "It's National Poetry Month!"

2. I  discover new ways to celebrate all things poetic:
30 Ways to Celebrate  - I had my daughter choose one of these activities for NPM as part of Home School

   3. I snuggle up each night with this really cool book by Susan G. Wooldridge:

poemcrazy: freeing your life with words

  4. I can linger with other poetry lovers in the Blogosphere
@ dVerse Poets Pub (well I usually try to do this every Tuesday year round)

5. I have an excuse to share some of my own written poems:

One confession: I don't have a favorite poet.

Do you celebrate National Poetry Month?

Do you have a favorite poet?

Do you have a favorite poem?

Happy National Poetry Month!

  1. Hello Dawn,

    I'm Cassandra and I'm visiting from Friendship Friday. No, I did not know about National Poetry Month but now that I do, I am going to purposefully search out a book of poetry to read this month. There is also a nice little blog called 'Poetry and A Cup of Tea' that you might like to visit this month. I enjoy Martha's posts very much.


    Nice to meet you. Have a great weekend and God Bless!

    1. Cassandra, That sounds wonderful- You reading a poetry book and the blog! I will be by to visit you as well as Martha! Blessed by your visit!

  2. This is right up your ally! I can tell how excited you are. I love reading poetry, just not as good with creating poetry. I love your poetry!

    1. Heather, thanks, my friend. Need to catch up with you. Hope all is well!


walk along the shore with me and leave your footprints in the sand-
I'm listening, friend...in November I will not be replying so often, but instead slip quietly over to your place for a visit. ;)
