Today we have another anonymous poet. And before you ask, it’s not our previously unnamed poet. There are more anonymous poets out there and maybe they’ll find their way into an STF post. Who knows.
I’m going to let this poem speak for itself. I feel it’s best experienced that way.
I hope you enjoy this poem. I did.
*Please read the note below the poem/box. It’s about National Poetry Month, in April.*
National Poetry Month is in April. Even if you don’t live in the US, NPM is something I’ve seen international poetry lovers celebrate, as well.
This April, I’m going to try celebrating it in a big way. This blog will turn change to an (almost) exclusively poetry blog all month. To do this I’ll need help from the fellow poets out there. Even if you’re not a poet you can join the fun.
I’m still putting together ideas, but as of now I’m looking for:
- Original work to post.
- Poets who’d like me to feature one of their books.
- Poets/Readers who’d like to write a guest post about
- why they enjoy poetry
- why they write poetry
- their favorite poet(s)
- or anything else related to poetry.
- More to come, but feel free to share ideas. I’m open to almost anything.

You can find the form linked at the end of the “How to Submit” section below, or in the menu at the top of the page. Right now I just need a head count. Though, if you know what you’d like your post to include, you can start discussing that with me (use the contact form for that).
How to Submit:
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 one 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!
