National Poetry Month

April 1, 2013

In addition to being the cruellest month, April is also National Poetry Month. As such, I’m making it my mission to write and post a new poem on this blog, every day. One poem a day. Thirty poems in thirty days. Why? Because, as Fra Lippo Lippi said, “This world’s no blot for us, / Nor blank; it means intensely, and means good: / To find its meaning is my meat and drink.”

And what better way to obtain meaning than through verse?
