Happy National Poetry Month! It’s week four and today’s poem I’ve share before. But I believe it needs as many mentions as possible.

Come listen to the poem that made me a fan of Danez Smith.

Are you a fan yet? What are you doing to celebrate National Poetry Month? Who’s your favorite poet? Why?

PS Poem in Your Pocket Day is this Thursday, April 26th. Here’s the link to this year’s poems. Choose a poem, print them out and carry it in your pocket to share with others. I’ll be sharing too.
