April is National Poetry Month!!

It's time to celebrate poetry this month!! Who is your favorite poet? My favorite poet is Maya Angelou!! I've seen Maya Angelou speak live twice and it was phenomenal as she sings, recites her poems, and much more!

One of my favorite poems by Maya Angelou is Phenomenal Woman. Watch the following video to hear  Maya Angelou recite Phenomenal Woman.

I also enjoyed listening to Maya Angelou recite On the Pulse of Morning at President Clinton's inauguration in January 1993. Watch the following video to hear On the Pulse of Morning.

Who are your favorite poets & poems? Will you be reading poetry this month in honor of National Poetry Month?
