And so it begins...National Poetry Month 2010

Tomorrow I'll post the first of 15 poems and essays and in doing so I'll kick off the third year of We Convince By Our Presence. Yes, you read that correctly---only 15 poems this year. Real life has caught up to me and I just don't have it in me to post 30 brand new, high quality essays to go with my favorite poems for every day in April. It's a little disappointing, but I realize this will benefit the blog in the long run. I plan to post a new entry every other day. We'll explore some exciting, thought provoking, and emotional poems by an amazing collection of poets including Rainer Maria Rilke, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Ted Kooser. Please join me on this great journey through the beautiful and stirring art of poetry.
