Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month. National Poetry Month began in the 90’s as a way to help increase knowledge and appreciation of poetry.

Poetry comes in many different forms and styles, and has a long history. You can read this article for a brief overview of poetry’s history.

I’ve never been a huge poetry fan, however, I’ve recently found myself wanting to read more poetry and trying to understand it better. I find that I like modern poetry the best. It is the easiest to understand and relate to – quite possible because of the way language evolves with time.
