National Poetry Month - The Poetry Project & Favorite Poem Project

Through The Poetry Project's live programming, workshops, publications, website and special events, The Poetry Project promotes, fosters and inspires the reading and writing of contemporary poetry by (a) presenting contemporary poetry to diverse audiences, (b) increasing public recognition, awareness and appreciation of poetry and other arts, (c) providing a community setting in which poets and artists can exchange ideas and information, and (d) encouraging the participation and development of new poets from a broad range of styles.

The Favorite Poem Project is dedicated to celebrating, documenting and encouraging poetry’s role in Americans’ lives.

One of my favorite poems is The Journey  by Mary Oliver. Every time I read it I am reminded that this is my one and only life and it is my responsibility to live it to the very fullest.

What is your favorite poem?
