National Poetry Month is an annual observance to pay tribute to one of the longest-lasting art forms and means of self-expression.  In a proclamation issued in honor of the first observance, President Bill Clinton called it “a welcome opportunity to celebrate not only the unsurpassed body of literature produced by our poets in the past, but also the vitality and diversity of voices reflected in the works of today’s American poets. Their creativity and wealth of language enrich our culture and inspire a new generation of Americans to learn the power of reading and writing at its best.”
