April--National Poetry Month!

To poet T.S. Eliot, "April is the cruellest month" (The Waste Land). To the Academy of American Poets, April is the poetic month. Let the celebration begin!

Since April 1 is April Fool's Day, here is a poem for kids by Kenn Nesbitt about April Fool's pranks.

A different kind of fool is described in the adult poem "I'm a Fool to Love You" by Cornelius Eady. Hear him read it to get the poem's full effect.

I'm going to try to post very frequently this month to share all things poetic--no foolin'!
