Of all the "National Something Months", April's Poetry Month seems to be the least advertised. Even the most dedicated of artists and readers may overlook this time of the year. But what better time is there for poetic artistic expression than when the sky opens up, flowers bud and bloom, and nature starts to sing again? And if you're not a die-hard poetry reader already, what better time to dip your toes in something new, discover a fresh perspective, and find a new true love?
If you're not sure how to get started, stop by to check out our Staff Picked poetry books, and for those particularly wary, start with our discounted poetry section! In the mean time, perhaps Grant Snyder's work below may help enlighten both the first-timer and the staunch devotee.
