Today is the first day of May, May Day if you will. Aside from it being the start of a new month, it’s also the end of another. It signals the end of April. But April is more than just another month on the calendar for many. It’s National Poetry Month (which is really international thanks to today’s global communications systems).
As you know, I make a big deal out of NPM. I also make a big deal about poetry year-round. Just because NPM ended, I’ll keep shoving more poetry down your throats (unless enough people make a fuss…then I’ll consider calming down a bit, haha). That means that for today, the first day of May and the first Story Time Friday post after NPM, I’m extending NPM for one last day.
In honor of all who gave poetry even a little more attention in April, here’s a poem to National Poetry Month.
For those who wish to be part of Story Time Friday in the near future, you can send submissions to the email address that I formerly used for review requests (but don’t anymore since I’m retired . . . don’t try to be clever and slip on in 😛 ): firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to use the subject “Story Time Friday Submission” and send your piece as an attachment (.doc/.docx would be best). Any other questions, feel free to comment here or contact me through the blog’s contact form.
Hope to hear from some writers soon!
