Here at Books Tell You Why, we love a good limerick and think sonnets are splendid. That’s why we’re happy to celebrate National Poetry Month.  If you’d like to join in the festivities, here are a few ways to join in:

  • Follow the Academy of American Poets on Twitter via @POETSorg. Each day in April, a different poet will compose the organization’s tweets.  Today’s poet is Joshua Clover.

  • Write a poem—or two. If you’re feeling really brave, post one here in the comments!
How will you be celebrating National Poetry Month? And which poets would you like to see featured?
