Winding Oak's Bookology Magazine

   
     
  Each day in April, we hope you'll return to listen to a new poem being read by the poet who wrote it. Share these poems with your friends,
your classroom, your book club, anyone who enjoys poetry ... and especially those who don't yet know how much they like it. This resource will remain on Bookology throughout the year.
