5 Ways to Infuse Poetry Into Your Life

by Cathy Baker

April is National Poetry Month so let’s celebrate! 

5 Ways to Infuse Poetry Into Our Daily Lives
  1. Put a poem in a letter: “It’s always a treat to get a letter, but finding a poem in the envelope makes the experience extra special.”
  2. Celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day: “The idea is simple: select a poem you love, carry it with you, then share it with co-workers, family, and friends.”
  3. Take a Poem Out to Lunch: “Adding a poem to lunch puts some poetry in your day and gives you something great to read while you eat.”
  4. Start a Commonplace Book: “Since the Renaissance, devoted readers have been copying their favorite
    poems and quotations into notebooks to form their own personal
    anthologies called commonplace books.” 
  5. Visit a poetry landmark: “Visiting physical spaces associated with a favorite writer is a memorable way to pay homage to their life and work.”
