Kelli Russell Agodon, over at her blog, The Book of Kells, is hosting a poetry giveaway during National Poetry Month, which on the West Coast, starts in about 3 hours. I love the idea, so I’ve decided to participate. This means that I will send two books of poetry to one lucky person, selected from among the throngs who respond to this post.
On May 1st, I will randomly choose a winner, and send you two recent books of poetry that I have fallen in love with:
Mean Free Path by Ben Lerner
Equal to the Earth by Jee Leong Koh
So keep those responses coming and you may be the winner!
what a great idea for poetry month!
I have a very small following– so your chances of winning are great!
I’m in — love your comment about a small following. hadn’t thought about that being an advantage!
(do I have to do anything else – write a poem or something?)
Risa, out of 30+ blogs listed on Kelli’s blog, I came here first because the name of your blog made me laugh. Now that I’ve wandered around a bit, I think I’ll be hanging out here. What a rich and wonderful place.
May I play too? :)
Ooh, count me in too!
Joyce, Chella, Kathleen, Margo, Shannon– thanks for stopping by. And thanks for staying a while. Happy poetry month!
Miriam- you’re not obligated to write a poem, but I highly recommend it.
Luisa- yes, absolutely!
Jo, you’re in. But I’ll need some contact information for you if you are the winner.

Please allow me to be (what I’m guessing is) the final entrant in your giveaway. I’m sad that I seem to be the only one to rush around signing up for the Big Poetry Giveaway at the last minute, I thought the Internet was full of procrastinators!
