Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit RAY SUAREZ, HOST: Now let's take a
moment to appreciate some of the poetry that's been coming in this month as
part of our celebration of National Poetry Month. We've been asking you, our
listeners, to tweet 140-character-or-less poems using the hashtag #NPRpoetry.
So far, we've had submissions about love and break-ups, politics, road trips,
even DNA. We've gotten Earth Day-appropriate submissions, like this from
Barry Goodmann in Northern New Jersey. (Reading) I look for poems in the
field and pull out dandelions. Every morning, they grow back and sing revise,
revise. I know the feeling, Barry. Thanks for your poem. Here's one from Phil
Boiarski, who's back tweeting poems with us for the second year in a row.
Here's one (reading) take to the woods to escape the world. Emerald light
blue in the sky, violets and bluets kiss my boots. Bloodroot catches my eye.
Thanks for participating again, Phil. And speaking of familiar faces or
rather voices -
