National Poetry Month is once again upon us. What can you do to celebrate? Try these:
1. Read one poem a day or set aside a few minutes to read poetry, either silently or out loud.
2. Write poetry: sonnets, haiku, free verse, anything goes!
3. Revise an old poem (or two or three).
4. Attend a poetry reading, workshop, or seminar.
5. Volunteer to read poetry to children at a school library.
6. Write a poem with someone else.
7. Memorize a favorite poem.
8. Send a poem to a friend or family member.
9. Write an 140-character Twitter poem.
“Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.” -Aristotle
