National Poetry Month

I recently learned that April is National Poetry Month in the United States. Considering the fact that I have been struggling to find something to write about, I thought it might be interesting to compile a list of my favorite poems. This list will include both traditional poems as well as spoken word (because why not).

- balance (rupi kaur)

- outlook (rupi kaur)

- [i carry your heart with me(i carry it in] (E.E. Cummings)

- I Wondered Lonely As a Cloud (William Wordsworth)

- She Dwelt among the Untrodden Ways (William Wordsworth) 

- Sonnet 116 (Shakespeare)

SPOKEN WORD:
