How do you feel about poetry? Some people love it, others no so much. This month I would like to encourage you to explore poetry or maybe give it another chance. Perhaps you want to look in the nonfiction area for a book of poetry in the 800s and access many poems on varying topics and ideas. Maybe you would prefer a novel in verse, where a more complex story is told through the art and creativity of poetry. You could also create poetry of your own using whatever style you prefer. However you choose to explore this literary art, I hope it helps you find connections with yourself and the world around you.
Not sure where to start? Try looking for works by Amanda Gorman and Elizabeth Acevedo.
