An April Villanelle

April ‘tis the National Month of Poetry
To celebrate sonnets and odes and songs
And forget our woes that it is so snowy…
Although the weather feels like February,
We can rally and cheer our way through,
With Byron, Burns and Bukowski
All on the shelves at L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library
You should check out a book today,
Or try any other activity
In Youth Services, get some poetry
From a machine against the wall
Just remember it takes tokens only!

Try some blackout or collage poetry
In the Dabble Box on the first floor
But if neither tickles your fancy
Take a trip to the second story
Where Young Adults have a delightful display
With many books of poetry
To help forget that it feels like February.
