The Blue Heron Speaks Featured Poet for April 2016 is Marianne Moore

Happy National Poetry Month!

In honor of our celebration of poetry this month, we wanted to feature a voice from the past ~ Marianne Moore. To be reminded of the artistry of words, which has come before us, is to honor a valuable source of inspiration, and to call forth the many muses who surround us every day. I do believe, that if you listen carefully when reading texts from the past, you will hear whispers. I invite you to enjoy this month’s selection of poems by Marianne Moore on the Blue Heron Speaks Featured Author Page. Allow whatever messages you are meant to receive, to come through. Please visit our featured authors from past months, for an abundance of contemporary poetic voices, as well as a few poets from our rich history of letters.
