Am I the only one who gets really excited about National Poetry Month (coming your way in, oh, 8 days...)?

Well, in case it floats your boat, too...every year for National Poetry Month (April), the Academy of American Poets sponsors a Poem-A-Day email. Don't forget to go sign'll get a poem each day selected from new books published this spring. It's a great way to come across poets you might never have read before, and I always hope to find a new favorite or two in the bunch.

I do wish they would stop using this poetry-as-medicine image though. Blech. Isn't reading poetry a *little* more fun than taking pills?
