Celebrating National Poetry Month With 30 Great Poems

National Poetry Month is the month of April, and there is no better way to celebrate the start of National Poetry Month than with a poem for each day in April. I have compiled a list of some amazing works of poetry. One of the most beautiful things about poetry is that it is such a broad genre. There are so many types of poetry out there. These poems range from famous poems by some of the greats like Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and Shakespeare, to more contemporary poems by people like Rupi Kaur, to Slam Poetry, to original poetry by amateurs. Poems can also be about a variety of topics including love, mental health, death, and an endless list of other choices. Here are 30 poems for 30 days of National Poetry Month!
