National Poetry Month

“I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creations of Beauty.” ~Edgar Allan Poe

Happy National Poetry Month!

Poetry can make you laugh. It can make you cry. It can provide solace. Poetry is a magical language that has the ability to touch the heart and soul.

There are many different forms of poetry — acrostic, ballad, cinquain, concrete, free verse, haiku, limerick, lyrical, ode, sonnet, and tanka to name a few. Each form offers a different way of expressing thoughts and emotions. Poetry is universal.

Behold, I give you my Book Spine Poetry.


As a former teacher/librarian, I found this book to be an excellent resource.


R is for Rhyme: A Poetry Alphabet written by Judy Young and illustrated by Victor Juhasz, Sleeping Bear Press.

My advice:  Find a poetry book. Sit down, relax, and enjoy the language of poems today and every day!
