an ode to poetry

april is national poetry month...

poetry is a great love of mine.

i devoted some time this weekend to this wonderful art and discovered the following...

* a website by the american academy of poets: poets.org

* a cool poem-of-the-day app: "poem flow" for iphone

* a beautiful film about poet john keats: bright star

(i watched this on friday night and was mesmerized!)

a few bright star photos to entice you...

We are big on National Poetry Month at my house too. I LOVED Bright Star. It was such a beautiful film. My husband took me to see it twice and then he bought it for me. I think he liked it a lot. Toots reminded me of my baby sister, she was so cute.
I loved your "first kiss" story.
