Poems from Home

April was National Poetry Month, and Cassandra Cuppy, our Assistant Librarian, asked the community to share their favorite poem. Some members of the community even read their original poems!

According to the Academy of American Poets: "National Poetry Month was launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996 to remind the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters."
