April may be National Poetry Month, but the Academy of American Poets website is a gift that gives all year long. It’s the online resource of the month.
Their website – poets.org – contains more than 5,000 poems from over a thousand different poets. You can search by topic. For example: four poems across seventy years, including one by a Pulitzer Prize winner have something to do with “lunch“.
If you don’t want to do the searching yourself, you can sign up to have a poem e-mailed to you every morning – from unpublished work from current poets to classic poems from the past couple of centuries.
More resource links are available on In Print’s Facebook page.
