National Poetry Month: Putting more Verse in the Universe!

Ah, April!  I imagine the origins of National Poetry Month stem from the hope that an abundance of poetry might encourage an early arrival of spring.  At our Co-Op in North Carolina, the doilied dogwoods, pink cherry trees, puffy bradford pears, and red tulips are blooming; the bright trumpets of daffodils have faded into their stalks, and azaleas are on the horizon.

Here are 10 ways we’ve decided to celebrate poetry this April, and we encourage you to do so too!

And of course, you can always share this post, or email/comment love to the editors at Tate Street High Society!  What are you doing to celebrate poetry this April?
