One more day until NaPoWriMo and National Poetry Month!!!!!!!
Lots of fun things coming your way.
How about a drawing for free copies of my book of poetry, Filters? Yay!
How about a free download of an e-book? I have two poems inside! How about a prompt and a poem a day?
Want to join me?
You can just read and share, you don’t have to write, but you are always welcome to write, always.
It almost here!!
Until then, sharing one of my favorite poems. Sadly, The Poetry Foundation has pulled the charming video of this poem. This makes me sad. Luckily, I was able to purchase it on a DVD a few years ago. So, here is a photo that I found from the video, one of Langston Hughes, and you’ll just have to read the poem out loud yourself. That’s okay, too!
April Rain Song
Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.
