National Poetry Month

March 29, 2012

Here is a little poem to celebrate April being National Poetry Month and help get you in the mood to write one for yourself.  It really does not matter if you are a poet or not, give it a try.  You may just surprise yourself.  Feel free to post any you write here in response, I would love to read them.

National Poetry Month

April’s here and the time has come
to dust off that mighty pen
scribe a few lines and pick a plum
that rhymes as the lines do end

Give us your thoughts on many things
whatever comes to mind
Then you will fly as birds with wings
and freedom you soon will find

We need your words to fill the cup
allowing our souls to drink
takes little time to fill it up
then causing our minds to think

Believe it or not, a poet’s there
sleeping deep within your soul
So take a chance and show your flair
and let your words take control
