Sad to say, but National Poetry Month is officially over. But, hey, that doesn’t mean we can’t reminisce about it together! So put down your book (only for a little while) and check out some of the poetry-related posts that were featured across the Library’s many blogs:
- “Francis Scott Key: the Lawyer-Poet,” written by Jennifer Davis (from the Law Library blog, In Custodia Legis)
- “The Unacknowledged Legislators of the World,” written by Brandon Fitzgerald (from the Law Library blog, In Custodia Legis)
- “Poetry Afield,” written by Stephanie Hall (from the American Folklife Center blog, Folklife Today)
- “The Power of a Poem,” written by Audrey Fischer (from the March/April 2015 issue of the Library of Congress Magazine, and posted on the Library of Congress Blog)
- “National Poets,” written by From the Catbird Seat‘s very own Peter Armenti (from the March/April 2015 issue of the Library of Congress Magazine, and posted on the Library of Congress Blog)
As a bonus, check out “A Pair of U.S. Poets Laureate for the Price of One,” a recap of Charles Wright‘s final program as U.S. Poet Laureate written by Ron Charles for The Washington Post’s Style Blog)
See? That wasn’t so bad, was it? Now back to your book. . . .
How did you celebrate the art of poetry during the month of April?
