What do Rita Dove, Robert Frost and Charles Simic all have in common? They have all been Poet Laureate of the United States! According to the poetry lovers at poets.org, “National Poetry Month was established by the Academy of American Poets as a month-long, national celebration of poetry. The concept was to increase the attention paid-by individuals and the mediaâ€”to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our poetic heritage, and to poetry books and magazines. In the end, we hoped to achieve an increase in the visibility, presence, and accessibility of poetry in our culture.” Here at the Todd Library, check out our display of old favorites and new faces. Take a poem for “Poem in your Pocket” Day, April 17. Read the poem of the day. Enjoy!
“Poetry is an orphan of silence. The words never quite equal the experience behind them.” Charles Simic
