[WORD PEOPLE] April Is National Poetry Month!

Did you know that April is National Poetry Month?

Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month, held every April, is the “largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture.”

April is also springtime, and springtime is the season of love!

So what better way to celebrate love and poetry than with these five sonnets by our favorite bard, William Shakespeare?
