Experience the power of a great poem for National Poetry Month
Apr 5 2023
Make April the month you start reading poetry. It’s a simple way to add daily reading to your life, and thousands of free poems are just a single click away! “Poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen,” wrote Leonardo da Vinci, reminding us that you don’t need a Ph.D. in literature to enjoy a great poem. You just need to be able to feel something—joy, sadness, love, or even anger. Finding poetry as easy as a trip to Instagram, where Sir Patrick Stewart has been reading a sonnet by Shakespeare every day. The beloved star of Star Trek: The Next Generation, X-Men, and countless Shakespearean plays, Sir Patrick’s amazing voice brings centuries-old poems to life.
