What a great roundup, Elaine! Thanks for putting that together.

I do a weekly roundup in April because it's so hard to keep up with all the great poetry posts during National Poetry Month. I don't get around to reading them all every day. The list of links makes it more convenient for me to go back and read them at a later time. I hope other people find these roundups helpful.

The time HAS flown--and I haven't been quick enough to keep up with all the poetry happenings in the kidlitosphere.
