Happy Earth Day! Happy National Poetry Month! I pondered what to post for today. There are so many wonderful, worthy books to highlight and poems to read. Just troll around Facebook, twitter, and author's blogs.
I decided to go back to the very beginning and share "The Creation" by James Weldon Johnson. I love it for it's strong sense of story, it's poetic language, and it's powerful tenderness.
And God stepped out on space,
And he looked around and said:
I'll make me a world.
Read the rest here.
Hearing poetry recited well is an experience. Take in "The Creation," recited by Wintley Phipps.
How do you celebrate Earth Day?
