National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month. Click here to learn more about National Poetry Month and the role of the Academy of American Poets in this initiative.

Locally, the Johnson County (KS)  Library partners with The Writers Place to post a Poem-a-Day in April in honor of National Poetry Month. One poem is featured each day then archived on the site. Go to and click on the National Poetry Month link to see the featured poem. Click "more" on that page to go to the archive to see the poems that already have been featured this month and those from previous years.

I hope you will return to the site often.


  1. I'm checking every day. Thanks for doing a good job of setting up the selections this year.
