Happy Poetry Day! Poetry Day was founded by William Sieghart in 1994. He is a British philanthropist, entrepreneur, publisher, and founded Forward Prizes for Poetry.
If you live in the Vermont area, you can check out the Robert Frost Poetry Trail in the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park. On this trail, you get to read about 15 of his poems while enjoying this area.
Our national park system is filled with some pretty cool things! Even poems!
I’ll leave with you a poem that I wrote many, many years ago. There’s no date on it, but guessing middle or high school.
To celebrate today, write a poem (you can definitely do better than this smile poem!), read a poem, check out a poetry trail, or support your local library. Happy Poetry Day!
