Why is April special? Aside from it being my birth month, it is also National Poetry Month in America. Is there one here in the Philippines? Anyway, you might be wondering why April is National Poetry Month. According to poets.org,
In coordination with poets, booksellers, librarians, and teachers, the Academy [of American Poets] chose a month when poetry could be celebrated with the highest level of participation. Inspired by the successful celebrations of Black History Month (February) and Women’s History Month (March), and on the advice of teachers and librarians, April seemed the best time within the year to turn attention toward the art of poetry—in an ultimate effort to encourage poetry readership year-round.
Isn’t it nice? My birthday is in April, I like poetry, and it’s National Poetry Month! 🙂
Earth Day, also falls on April, April 22 to be exact. So, here’s a reminder to save our planet! It’s the only one with chocolate in it! 😀
I was just wondering, why doesn’t earth hour fall on earth day? Do you know?
My special April also saw the kids enjoy the beach twice. First in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, the second one in Pico de Loro, which I am yet to write about. Plus, playtime with their cousins in the pool at my second brother’s place.
So, for National Poetry Month and in line with getting in touch with nature and saving our planet, I am sharing with you Robert Frost’s poem called God’s Garden.
Again, I picked up the Robert Frost Selected Poems book a friend gave me, hoping I will finish it this time. 🙂
How about your April? Anything special happened? 🙂
