Nat'l Poetry Month Slide One
Have you ever seen a spring as beautiful as this,
the red of that maple, the washed denim sky?

excerpt from “Joy,” from
Heartbreak Tree by Pauletta Hansel
(Winner of the 2023 PSV North American Book Award)

Nat'l Poetry Month Slide Two
My bare feet soak up the sun: two old white cats
on the porch in the morning. This is spring. It’s home
and it’s a mystery, deep as your bones.

excerpt from “Barefoot Madrigal”
from Heirloom Language
by Barbara E. Young

Nat'l Poetry Month Slide Three
May I pay attention today
to the call of birds
first warm breath of spring
sunlight glinting off a pretty girl’s long hair.

excerpt from “Prayer for the Restless Son” from multiple-award-winner Some Notes You Hold by Rita Simms Quillen
