Poetry at the CFL
T.S. Eliot wrote: “April is the cruelest month, breeding/Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing/Memory and desire, stirring/Dull roots with spring rain.” Respectfully, Mr. Eliot, I disagree. As the temperatures rise, there is much to look forward to and celebrate in April, including National Poetry Month.
Since 1996, schools and libraries across the United States have observed National Poetry Month, established by the Academy of American Poets. Throughout April we highlight the art of poetry, celebrating the literary achievements of past poets as well as new works by contemporary poets. We invite you to join the celebration by checking out our collections of poetry.
