It's National Poetry Month!
I can't say that I've read a whole lot of poetry lately, but in high school I definitely enjoyed reading poets from my British Literature course, like William Wordsworth and John Keats. I'm a bit of a romantic, I guess.
It seems writing (and reading) poetry is becoming more and more popular nowadays, and I've been noticing some modern poets that I might like to read up on soon, preferably cozied up with a cup of something hot.
To celebrate the wonderful art of poetry this month, here's a roundup of some great pins and links to poets and their works.
