From all of us at the BYU Bookstore, we hope you have a wonderful Poetry Month!
This is an exciting time for the BYU Bookstore, it's a great time to celebrate captivating work, to stop and enjoy the beauties of language, to step out of the ordinary life and transcend into more enriched human beings.
As Pulitzer prize writer Carl Sandburg put it,
is the journal of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the
air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the
unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how
rainbows are made and why they go away."
We hope you will stop and take some time out your day to appreciate poetry more, whether that's reading on, writing one, or participating in poetry reading.
Come celebrate with us for the following events:
And also, stay tuned this next month while we share some of our favorite poems with you.
