I have a friend who has an ability that I very much envy. She is able to quote poetry on virtually any subject. I’m always a bit awestruck when she does it. I’m also ashamed at my level of ignorance in this area as other than rose are red, violets are blue kinds of poetry, I know little of the literary form.
April is Poetry Month. Established by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, it’s been celebrated every year since. I’ve decided to celebrate with them, and possibly do something about my ignorance. I’ve just signed up for their “Poem-a-Day” program and will certainly be the better for it.
Cheers — Larry
