Poetry on the Trails April 10, 2015 – Posted in: Content, Miscellany – Tags: national parks, National Poetry Month, Poetry, Washington
April is National Poetry Month.
National Park Week is set for April 18-26.
What a better way to celebrate both cultural assets then to put some poetry in the parks!
For the second year in a row the Port Angeles Library, which is part of the Washington State North Olympic Library System, is teaming up with Olympic National Park to create a series of four self-guided walks in the park featuring poetry scattered throughout the landscape.
Poets featured include Emily Brontë, Robert Burns, Raymond Carver, E.E. Cummings, Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Mary Oliver, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Percy Shelley and Gary Snyder among others.
And if your muse is kindled during your visit you’re encouraged to submit your own poem or photo for inclusion on the library’s Facebook page.
The poetry will be in the landscape from April 13 to June 14.
