April is the cruelest month, according to TS Eliot in his famous modernist poem of 1922, The Wasteland. However, it is also National Poetry Month, and LitWorld, the global literacy organisation, is celebrating the power and spirit of words by inviting you to help to compose a Global Poem for Change. The American-born poet, novelist and somgwriter Naomi Shihab Nye has kicked it off with the first line:
I send my words out into the air, listening for yours from everywhere.
What words do you send out into the air?
Celebrate Poetry Month and create a Global Poem for Change with LitWorld!
