30 days, 30 poems: Year 2

Last year I posted 30 poems during the month of April, in honor of National Poetry Month. I'm doing the same this year.

I cannot promise a poem every day--I wouldn't be able to suceed. So some days will have two or more poems, others none. There will still be 30 poems for the month. (Even if it means that I have to post ten on April 30, which it might. ;))

What a great idea. When it comes to Keats, I always favored "When I have fears that I may cease to be". However, Pied Beauty was always a favorite because it reminds me of my calico cats.
