Before you get too bogged down with schedules and papers and social obligations, why not slow down a minute and visit the National Poetry Month page? There’s a lot there. You’ll find a poem-a-day to read, the Life/Lines contest where you can submit what lines of poetry have most strongly affected you and why, poems categorized by occasion, and much more. Don’t have much time? How about a pocket poem? The idea is that on April 17th, everyone will walk around with a poem in their pocket, but we think it’s a great place to find short, intriguing poems.
