A celebration of poetry in April


CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

A CELEBRATION OF POETRY IN APRIL:

April is Poetry Month

 

 

     A fine way to end April, Poetry Month, is to read or write poetry, so today I am posting links to poems of interest from the Beanery Online Literary Magazine, an outgrowth of and experiment by members of the Beanery Writers Group, which I facilitate (other writings can be found at www.beanerywriters.wordpress.com ).

     The first on the list is the only poem I have posted, one of two I have written. It was written while I was traveling through Maine and seeing many signs:  MOOSE CROSSING.

Moose, Goose, Deer

 

     Since April is also National Child Abuse Prevention Month, I separated out the poems on abuse issues:

DUST MOTE

I BELONG TO MY FAMILY

MY HAPPY PLACE

REACH OUT

THE WELL-ADJUSTED CHILD

WHERE ARE YOU NOW?

WILL YOU LOVE ME TO DEATH?

     A final separation is a children’s poem, gleaned from conversations between my daughter in law and her tow-year-old son, while driving:

A FAT CAT AND A SAD DAD

     Enjoy reading the following poems by members and visitors to the Beanery Online Literary Magazine:
