April is National Poetry Month. I enjoy reading and writing poetry, but I don’t make as much of an effort to read poetry as often as I could or should. As part of celebrating National Poetry Month, I will dust off some of the books of poetry that I have on my shelves (collections by Emily Dickinson, collections of love poems, Pablo Neruda, Shakespeare, Frost) and would like to read a poem each day. I might also have to treat myself to a book or two that I have on my wish list (see below).
Sailing Alone around the Room: New and Selected Poems by Billy Collins
Love Letters (Everyman’s Library)
Eat, Drink and Be Merry: Poems about Food and Drink
Art and Artists: Poems
Music’s Spell: Poems about Music and Musicians
The Poetry of Pablo Neruda
The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems
