The Sounds of Poetry

| |

It’s National Poetry Month and we are sharing the joy and love of poetry with you. The items below are digital audiobooks and books on CD. Poetry is the spoken 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 2021. You can choose to read or listen to poems with themes of love or nature. There are narrative poems, epic poems, sonnets, lyric poems, ballards, or limericks. There is a poem for every mood or occasion. Enjoy the sounds of poetry!
