As you might have noticed, it’s National Poetry Month! In honour of this special occasion, we will be giving away a copy of Leon Rooke’s aptly named book, The April Poems.
The April Poems is probably my favourite book of the season. It’s playful and poignant, witty and wise. It’s tempting to call it a study in contrasts, because some poems are laugh-out-loud funny, while others make me suspiciously misty-eyed, but really, it reflects the spectrum of live and love and loss. It’s just the kind of poetry I want to read on a cloudy April day, snuggled up in a warm halo of lamplight with a steaming cup of coffee while the rain taps the windowsills.
Sound good to you, too? You could win a copy.
