World Poetry Day

To celebrate World Poetry Day, here is a poem to start off you day:

There is no Frigate like a Book

By Emily Dickinson

There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry –
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll –
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears the Human Soul –”

Also, Julius Meinl, a coffee roasting company, celebrates UNESCO’s World Poetry Day with a promotion in their coffee cafes and restaurants. They will allow customers to pay for the coffees by submitting one of their own poems. Find a participating location near you.
