Poetry Month

It’s been crazy at Casa BookGirl lately. I’ve had family in town, have been busy with some craft swaps and the weekend has just flown by. I am in need of another one.

Anyway I wanted to pop in and say Happy National Poetry Month everyone! To see what this is all about visit the Academy of American Poets web site.

Anyone have any plans to celebrate poetry month? It’s easy, go to a poetry reading, memorize a poem, write one, etc.

Ink runs from the corners of my mouth
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.

~Mark Strand, “Eating Poetry,” Reasons for Moving, 1968
