Ballistics by Billy Collins

Got any budding poets in your classroom? Well, April is National Poetry Month, established in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets. According to www.poets.org, this is a time “when publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of businesses and non-profit organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.”
