It’s National Poetry Month and we are sharing the joy and love of poetry with you! The items below are digital audiobooks from Hoopla and Libby and books on CD. Listening to a poem is another way of experiencing this written word. The rhythm, the inflection, the tone of voice and the phrasing all contribute to the experience of a poem. Some of the poems on this list are spoken by the poets themselves. Some are centuries old and others were written in the twenty-first century. You can listen to poems with themes of love or nature. There are narrative poems, epic poems, sonnets, lyric poems, ballads, or limericks. Some of these audiobooks include music. There is a poem for every mood or occasion!
Enjoy the sounds of poetry!
