Poetry Blog: Like Waiting for April

Ann A. has recommended to me a poetry blog run by one of her readers which has postings only in April of each year -- National Poetry Month. Like Waiting for April is the name of the site, and the owner, "Be," takes requests and solicits comments on poetry. Her April 1 selection, offered by one of her readers, was John Donne's "The Annunciation and Passion." Today's poem is the Venerable Bede's death song—Be connects Bede to John Paul II as a historical figure and an inspiring character.

The site also provides links to major poetry sites such as the Academy of Americna Poets and the Favorite Poem Project.

Why not go there and offer Be a favorite poem?
