Sprinkle No. 29


April is National Poetry Month.

Your *sprinkle* this week is to find and share a poem that you love.
Here are some ideas:

1. Post a poem to your blog.

2. Print out a poem and send it snail mail to someone you love.

3. Start some chain-poetry. Email a favorite poem to a few good friends and ask them to add a poem they love to yours and send it along.

4. Read several poems aloud with children or other family members.

5. Use a beloved poem on a scrapbook page with a photo that you feel illustrates it’s message.

Leave me a comment and share what you will do celebrate poetry this week and the rest of the month. By the way … Thursday, April 29th is Carry a Poem in your Pocket Day. Make a note on your calendar and Learn more at Poetry.org



  1. Love this sprinkle! I’ve always loved Robert Frost’s poetry

  2. Today I printed poem to send with a sympathy card. The poem was one that was read at my father-in-law’s funeral several years ago. I printed the poem on cardstock, inked the edges, then adhered it to some pretty patterned paper and inked the edges of that also. My hope is that it will bring some comfort to our grieving friends.

    For the month, the book club I attend at our library shared and discussed poems this month. I also checked out a book of poetry from the library which I read last week.

  3. Hi Stacy, Thanks for the challenge. Here is mine on my blog at http://www.creativeheartathome.blogspot.com.

  4. Oh I have a favorite poem! It is by Langston Hughes (hope that is spelled right) Called Dreams
    Hold fast to your dreams
    For when dreams die,
    Life is a broken winged bird that can not fly
    Hold fast to your dreams,
    For when dreams go,
    Life is a barren field,
    Covered with snow.

    I don’t know if that is the entire poem, but I have always loved and remembered it.

  5. I have so many ideas for scrapbook pages in my head that I would like to illustrate with poetry! Here’s one that I did (just for fun) for the Week 9 assignment for LOM. I don’t think that I can link to that gallery here, so I’ll link it to my Blog. http://www.elisabethstewart.com/bethinking/2010/04/hopkins-aka-popcorn.html
