Embracing Poetry

April is designated National Poetry Month. We are encouraged to celebrate poetry. by reading poetry, writing poetry, and sharing poetry. All poetry all the time for a month.

Then in May, we go back to our normal attitude toward poetry, whatever attitude that might be. I’m fairly certain the intent is to remind people to embrace poetry all the time, but it doesn’t seem to work that way.
