The 2012 National Poetry Month poster, designed by Chin-Yee Lai
The 16th installment of National Poetry Month is upon us and it's the time for all of us to "celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture."
Here are 30 ways courtesy of Poets.org for you and your loved ones to participate, engage and honor language and the magic of words.
There is something here for everyone, regardless of your background and poetic experience.
As poet and businessman Wallace Stevens profoundly put it; poetry is "a response to the daily necessity of getting the world right."
And in a world that feels like so much is not quite right, we need the energy of poetry more than ever.
Happy National Poetry Month!
