Poets, Poetry and Books on Permaculture


Poets and Poetry 

April 2021 marks the 25th annual celebration of poets and poetry, called National Poetry Month.

To celebrate, we are highlighting some new collections of poetry and some Vermont favorites. Amanda Gorman reminded us at this year’s presidential inaugural how critical poetry can be to help us understand our time and see a path forward. If you missed her powerful recitation, you can read the poem on line at https://www.baltimoresun.com/opinion/editorial/bs-ed-0121-gorman-transcript-20210120-5ojxffrfb5cybjabhgiffgiyhi-story.html

A great poetry resource is Poets.org found at https://poets.org/ where you can sign up to have a poem sent to your inbox daily, find poems and poets.


You can also read last year’s most-read poem, Naomi Shihab Nye’s “Kindness, at https://poets.org/poem/kindness.
