Poetry Sings!

April is National Poetry Month.

Meghan Trainor sings, “…I’m all about that bass, ’bout that bass…” She’s got the rhythm. She’s got the beat. So does poetry. It’s all about using language to create rhythm and sounds that have the ability to elicit emotions. Meghan Trainor sings and so does poetry.

Poetry can be many things —evocative, lively, joyful, whimsical, humorous. During National Poetry Month, take some time to find your favorite type of poetry and enjoy!
