April is National Poetry Month

For most people, the month of April has a number of hallmarks: baseball season starts, taxes are due, and the weather in most places gets even weirder than usual (I'm from the south, where April usually means tornado season). In addition to all of this, April is also National Poetry Month. As a former English teacher and English lit major, I happen to love poetry. I know that many people do not share this sentiment. However, since April is National Poetry Month, I thought it would be fitting to dedicate a blog (or two) a week to some of my favorite poems. I'm planning on posting the first one on Friday (4/4).
