It’s April 16th and we’re in the third week of poetry month. As before I’m sharing a specific poetry reading that indoctrinated me as that poet’s fan. 

Here’s today’s poem by poet Blythe Baird. Enjoy!

It’s the second day of National Poetry Month. Have you fallen in love with poetry yet?

Well I fell in love with poetry a long time ago. And what’s best about it is that it’s also a love I find again and again. We all have become a fan of someone because something they created had ensnared us.

Today’s poet was one I found by happenstance thanks to Button Poetry. And the poem that ensnared me, making me a fan…here it is.

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