Year Of The Poet - Poem by bob barci

I proclaim January,
the “Month of Poets”.
Why, just look at all if offers
the poet to write about.
New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day,
cold, snowy winter days, hot chocolate, fireplaces,
and so much more.

I proclaim February,
as “Month of the Poet”.
Why, just look at all it offers
the poet to write about.
Valentine’s Day, George and Abe, Groundhog Day, Ash Wednesday,
brisk, snowy days, ice skating, sledding, ski trips,
and much, much more.

I proclaim March,
as “The Poetic Month”.
Why, just look at all it offers
the poet to write about.
St. Patrick’s Day, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Easter,
somewhat chilly days, the onset of spring,
and much more.

I proclaim April,
as the “Month of Poems”.
Why, just look at all it offers
the poet to write about.
Passover, April showers, warming days, tree buds,
and more, so much more.

I proclaim May,
as “Poets Month”.
Why, look at what if offers
the poet to write about.
Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, warm, sunny days,
trees and flowers in bloom, picnics on the grass, street fairs,
and so much more.

I proclaim June,
the “Month of Poetry”.
Why, look at what it offers
the poet to write about.
Flag Day, Father’s Day, the onset of summer, jogging,
beaches, weddings, graduates,
and so much more. (continued)



I proclaim July,
as “Poetry Month”.
Why, look at what it offers
the poet to write about.
The Fourth Of July, roller skating, getting a tan, pools, barbeques,
and tons of good fun.

I proclaim August,
as a “Month of Poems”.
Why, look at what it offers
the poet to write about.
While here are no special holidays, there are vacations,
just traveling around, street fairs, museums, movies, plays,
and a whole lot more.

I proclaim September,
a “Month for Poetizing”.
Even this month offers
the poet so much to write about.
Labor Day, Rosh Hashanah, onset of the fall, gong back to school,
and a great deal more.

I proclaim October,
a “Month to Write Your Own”.
Why, look at all it offers
the poet to write about.
Yom Kippur, Columbus Day, Halloween,
windy days, colorful leaves falling off branches,
and so much more.

I proclaim November,
the “Month To Listen To Your Fellow Poet”.
Listen to the ideas they offer
their fellow poets to write about.
Election Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day,
colder days, possibly an Indian summer,
and much, much more.

I proclaim December,
as a “Month To Exchange Poetry”.
Here again, there’s so much
that the poet can write about.
Hanukah, Christmas, the onset of winter,
hopefully some snowy days, definitely cold and windy days, resolutions
and so much more.
