lesson plans for educators and an audio archive of poetry readings and lectures, as well as publishing American Poet, a biennial journal.
Of course, we reserve the right to interrupt our month of poetry blogs with other items of current interest, but we hope that our focus on poetry will prove an interesting sojourn for both our readers and our writers and add a bit of variety to our roll of more than 540 posts to date.
The Best Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the just-published Poems to Learn by Heart, aimed at younger readers. There is a terrific interview of Kennedy by Associated Press reporter Jocelyn Noveck appearing in a number of places, including NPR.
And so, with apologies to the real poets out there,
For all this month we will focus on poems
On types of poetry and on poetry tomes
And as you read the posts we write
We hope you share in our delight
In this wonderful world of words and rhyme
Where rhythm and language create worlds sublime
