One of many things you can do to celebrate National Poetry Month is to take the time to memorize a poem. You’ll be amazed at how long it sticks with you after you commit it to memory! Julia Wilbers, one of our Reference Librarians, can still recite (at least portions of) “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe and “O Captain, My Captain” by Walt Whitman which she had to memorize over 20(!) years ago.
Need some motivation? Enjoy watching this 3-year old recite a poem she memorized in a week. You’re welcome 😉
Happy National Poetry Month!
