April is Poetry Month!

April 8, 2021

Evening sky glistens

Awash with dazzling colors

Sun whispers goodnight

~CSO

How about a little haiku to begin poetry month? An idea. Three lines. Seventeen syllables – 5-7-5. Voilà!

There is joy to be found in words that paint pictures. Choose any book below and immerse yourself and your family in the world of poetry. Read. Relax. Enjoy.
