April is National Poetry Month!

Image representing April as National Poetry Month and all the programs happening at Jacksonville Public Library

It’s hard to imagine a world without the soul-stirring poems of Maya Angelou, the comic verse of Ogden Nash, or the influential works of Walt Whitman, the father of free verse. Now during National Poetry Month, you can kick up your own poetry appreciation—and enjoyment—with poetry programs and more. 

Haiku for You

As we wave goodbye to the last day of April, we honor Poetry Month with a couple of excellent (library related) Haiku's!
