Happy National Poetry Month!

It’s the last the day of poetry month and whew 30 days flew by fast. This year I didn’t do my usual 30 days of poetry blog posts. But I hope you still enjoyed the few poems I’ve shared with you this month.

Did you enjoy reading and writing poetry this month? Discovered a new favorite poet?
