March 21, 2020 is recognized as World Poetry Day. UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) founded World Poetry day in 1999 to recognize national, regional and international poetry movements The goal was to inspire the celebration of poetry all over the world, and to encourage reading, writing, and teaching of poetry.
It is believed that the first known poem appeared 4,000 years ago in Babylon. Poetry uses rhythms and imagery to elicit emotion and the imagination of the reader. Types of poems to enjoy include limericks, sonnets, ballads, and haikus, so there is something for everyone.
One of my favorite poets has always been Robert Frost. Please feel free to share your favorite in the comments and have an enjoyable World Poetry Day.
