It is, but so what. You like poetry or you don’t. Even if you don’t, you can probably admit that there has been at least one poem in your life that you enjoyed. As an example, I love
John Keats and his Romantic poetry. Whether it’s my poor memory (likely) or odd tastes (even more likely) the only poem of his I’ve fully committed to memory is this one:
GIVE me women, wine, and snuff
Untill I cry out “hold, enough!”
You may do so sans objection
Till the day of resurrection:
For, bless my beard, they aye shall be
My beloved Trinity.
So why bring all that up? Here it is: A Poem From Us. I read about this project in this article, “A Poetry Project to Celebrate National Poetry Month.” It’s brief and worth glancing at. To sum this up, the project is “use technology to help folks share their love of poetry with others.” There are opportunities to contribute as well as distribute poetry. Curious? Follow the links for more thorough explanations and for a look at the poetry people chose to share. What would/will you share?
