National Poetry Month (USA, Observed)

Inspired by Black History Month (February) and Women’s History Month (March), the American National Poetry Month (April) may seem a bit absurd.

“We shall set aside a month in order to show respect for the words that create community.” one may have declared; though the only really American declaration is that of it’s Independence, of which we’re too kind to point out the mistake(s) in.

So, maybe something more like “We gon’ say Ayyy-priiiill be for the rhyme-y words, ya’ll.” Or something like that.

It was discussed in 1995 and first overseen in 1996.

There’s not much more to it, but I’ll wrote a poem for ya’ll:

The wind comes strong

The days come long

The sun comes bold

Where the night comes cold

Where you are not.

The storm comes strong,

And it stays long –

We are not bold

When the night comes cold

Where you are not.

See, I just wrote that – as I was typing. Poetry’s easy. At least, for me.
