A Healthy Dose of Poem

It’s cold here in Nebraska.  Last week, the weather was in the 70s.  Today, it’s not going to make it to 40 degrees Fahrenheit!  Granted, 39 degrees isn’t unbearable–it’s not even the coldest its been this year–but I got so used to those warm and sunny days.

If I can help it, I’m going to stay inside as much as possible today.  And to stave off the boredom, I’ll read some poetry blogs.  Why poetry blogs?  Because it’s National Poetry Month (hence our poetry sale)! 

Poets keep blogs:
The Poetry Foundation has a blog called Harriet which discusses all things poetry from AWP to TV.  Need to know what’s going on in the world?  Check out poet Jilly Dybka’s Poetry Hut Blog, a compilation of daily poetry related news.  A compilation of poets that probably makes news, The DC Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency, has a blog which showcase members’ poems.  There’s a poet named Sandra Beasley who keeps a blog with the interesting title Chicks Dig Poetry.   Poetry for Children, a blog by Professor Sylvia Vardell of Texas Woman’s University, offers suggestions and abbreviated lesson plans.

Lastly, here’s nothing to do with poetry.

Enjoy your Thursday!
