Getting in the Mood for Poetry

I was so happy to stumble across several great poetry videos. The one above may be found on the YouTube Channel of Renee LaTulippe. She has created a fantastic collection of videos of various authors reading their poetry. She also has a website called No Water River with poetry resources.

Another great source of poetry videos is The Poetry Foundation. I enjoyed seeing a sign language presentation of Emily Dickinson's "Hope is the Thing with Feathers" and Mary Ann Hoberman reading her book I Like Old Clothes. I especially loved "April Rain Song" written and read by Langston Hughes. 

Reading Rockets also has some fantastic links and resources for poetry. I can tell April will be awesome!
