April is National Poetry Month!

(Cross-posted at The Blue Herald)

The Vagabond Scholar poetry category isn't as large as I'd like, but I wrote a fairly extensive post for National Poetry Month last year. I've also added a few poetry sites to the VS blogroll since. They can be found on the bottom left. Get yer verse on!

If political poetry is your thing, it's hard to keep up with the creative output over at Poetic Justice.

I will be adding a few more poetry posts this month, and please feel free to link or add any favorite poems. But to kick things off properly, here's one of my favorites:

This Is Just to Say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

— William Carlos Williams
