From the library shelves, they stand tall
With words that give a beckoning call:
Words that rhyme all silly willy,
And words that are goosebumpy chilly,
Words that sound like the sweetest of treats,
Or rise from the page in clap-a-ble beats.
Poems by the dozens are waiting to be read.
“Poetry is for everyone!,” it must be said! (“From the Library Shelves” by CK Emanuel)
Poetry offers wordplay perfect for readers (and listeners) of all ages. From nursery rhymes to novels in verse, there is something for everyone!
To celebrate National Poetry Month, a small list of great poetry books has been assembled for your online browsing pleasure, but do stop in the Library, we’ve got even more books to offer!
