Let's talk about Poetry

April is National Poetry Month, and we'd love to know which poems have made an impression on you.  In the comments below, or on our facebook or twitter sites, let's hear from you.  Let's talk about poetry!

Book Spine Poetry on library display. who do you think you are. the books of secrets. taking root. choosing to see. is anyone listening?

What is your favourite poem? 

What makes that poem special to you?

What poems do you remember learning as a child? 

Do you still remember all the words?

And of course if you're looking for the words to a poem you remember, some new poems to explore, information about poetry and poets, or to learn about poetry programs and activities for children and adults at London Public Library, you can start your search on our website here.

Happy Poetry Month!
