Celebrate National Poetry Month This April, 2024!

A haiku is a form of Japanese poetry frequently written in three lines – the first and third lines often have five syllables, while the second line has seven. Another type of poetry (much longer than a haiku) is a novel in verse – a multi-paged story told in poetry instead of prose. Enjoy some beautiful poetry – from shorter poems in picture books such as Like So, to longer novels in verse like Louder Than Hunger – to celebrate National Poetry Month!
