Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art & Environment

Ed Hessler

Here you may listen as she reads it.
As you know April is National Poetry Month. You may have signed up for a copy of the official poster. It is no longer available. However, if you didn't you may want to see/download a copy here it is. 
There is information about the illustrator Marc Brown (Arthur series), the initiative which produced the artwork between the American Academy of Poets and Scholastic, resources for educators, and a link to Carrying, the poem from which the excerpted line on which the poster is based by U. S. Poet Laureate Ada Limon

A Library of Congress press release for April 24 announced that Ada Limon was appointed U. S. Poet Laureate for a historic second term, the 24th Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry. The announcement includes a description of the position, a brief biography and accomplishments during her first term.

Poetry...a good thing so keep on reading it.
