Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.

And that's exactly how I feel after this wonderful poetry-filled month! Pure happiness. Especially as I achieved my goal of a poem a day. They're not all great poems, but some of them are on their way. And even on my worst day when I wrote a poem called "Thirteen Reasons Why I am Unable to Write a Poem Today," I still managed to eke out a likable line or two. And it was fun!
Also, I came up with a new (brilliant) name for my next collection. And I made an important decision about the direction of my poetry career. More on this later.
Meanwhile, I do believe I promised one last giveaway in celebration of National Poetry Month 2010. Here's what the lucky winner will receive (and the volume with CD where the above Mark Strand poem can be found):
Leave me a comment, and you're entered to win! I'll announce a winner Friday, May 7. And don't miss today's Roundup over at Great Kids Books!
