April is almost upon us...BRING ON THE POETRY!!!

Hi Everyone,

We are only a week away from the start of National Poetry Month. Are you excited? You should be. I hope you'll be checking in with me frequently over the month of April. One thing that you'll notice is that many of my essays will be on the shorter side this year; in fact, they might be single paragraphs. I'm also planning to include a few movies I've made of some favorite poems, both old and new. There's a reason for these changes. With my job and my pursuit of a second graduate degree, time is quite limited. I contemplated placing We Convince By Our Presence on a one year hiatus and coming back refreshed and hopefully with more free time next year. Instead, I opted for briefer essays, but a new feature of some movie versions of favorite poems. A new feature will be posted on the blog daily, with new essays and movies posted every other day.

I look forward to you joining me on a wonderful, month-long journey through some excellent poems.

All the best,
