National Poetry Month

According to the Poetry Foundation website, National Poetry Month has been cancelled. A most excellent April Fool's post, if ever there was one.

Starting tomorrow, I'll be posting a poem a day, each one related to a favorite line from the works of Jane Austen, which will include lines from her letters as well as her novels and her juvenilia. Because I figured "why not combine two of my favorite things?" (Damn - now I'm singing "My Favorite Things", from The Sound of Music. So it goes.)

I hope to post daily this month, to get back in the habit of regular blogging. Wish me luck.

Ack! I meant to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY on your day and then spaced it out. So here I am, a day late, wishing you a coming year filled with much love, laughter, and good stuff! Hope your birthday was grand, Kelly.

I needed the reminder to put my National Poetry Month poster up in my classroom :)

I wish you luck and I wish you joy. I like the angle you are taking with this. And you've inspired me to pick up a poetry collection or two.

Anything I can do to get people reading poetry is a good thing, in my opinion.
