Terence, this is stupid stuff…

National Poetry Month is upon us, and the 10th Anniversary to boot. The Academy of American Poets is going all-out this year, with a reading tour of ten cities, lots of outreach plans, and an activity calendar for every day of the month. The Academy’s site is packed with enough poetic goodness to keep an interested dataminer working for weeks.

If you’re feeling a little more active, pick a form and try your hand.

Dust off your favorite, corner a hapless bystander, and read aloud. Or post your favorite verse in the Gabfest.
