In Celebration of National Poetry Month, I Present Some My Favorite Poems


Hello Everyone! Since I'm a big literature fan, and because April is National Poetry Month, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite poems with you guys.

Poetry may not have anything to do with recipes, organizing, housekeeping or any of the other things I usually blog about, but poetry, art, music, and literature is good for the soul.

Poetry is a great escape from the troubles and day to day struggles of our lives and our world. It gives us the opportunity to explore the past and present, to learn new things about ourselves, and gain insight into the human condition.
