Add a favorite poem to the library wall

April is both School Library Month AND National Poetry Month!

As your librarian and a poet, I’m rather enamored with this combination and it makes this month a perfect time to feature POEMS treasured by MLWGS Dragons – students & faculty – on the LIBRARY’s message wall.

So…please help me amplify poetry awareness in our school library.

How, you ask? Please pick a favorite poem, print it, and post it on the library’s message wall.  Include the poet’s name on the printed copy. Then, after you print it, jot a note on the paper that indicates “posted by [Your Name].”

To Be of Use” by Marge Piercy and “No Help for That” by Charles Bukowski have already been posted today.  Which poem will you add?

Need more poetry? Beside the message wall, you’ll find six contemporary American poetry books on display. These are just a small sampling of the classic and contemporary American poetry available in the MW Library.  For more new favorite poem possibilities, browse 808.81 and 811 on the library shelves. British poetry is in 821. Looking for poems in other languages? You’ll find French poetry in 861, Spanish poetry in 861, Russian poetry in 891, and Chinese poetry in 895.

Shelf with six poetry books on it: January Children; Seam; Native Guard; When I Grow Up I Want to be a List of Further Possibilities; Here, Bullet; and Kingdom Animalia.
