Monday's Memo: April's Also N'tl Poetry Month (ETC)

This past Tuesday, April 3rd 2018, as part of my Tuesday's Truths series, (published here on Blogger) I mentioned in my post that April is National Gardening and Lawn Month.

Today, I'm adding a memo to that entry by reminding you that April is also National Poetry Month. In honor of this fact, I've put an image of Wendell Berry's poem, THE PEACE OF WILD THINGS, atop this posting. I learned of this the poem through Chris Deatherage, the man who designed my website, Additionally, as many of you know, Chris also has created other materials for me (including business cards and press releases).

Moreover, he edited and formatted volumes one and two of the Words In Our Beak series (which are pictured below).


A fact worth mentioning during this National Poetry month is that in volume one of this book series there are references to poems, including ones by ones by Joyce Kilmer and Longfellow, poets which I've discussed in prior entries here on Blogger.

Moreover, I've also written about National Poetry Month here including an entry (4-6-2017).

For your information, dear reader, others who have published poems have also been featured here on Blogger and since it is National Poetry Month, you might want to check them out. They include (in alphabetical order): Raymond Carver, Geoffrey Chaucere.e. cummingsEmily DickinsonT.S. EliotThomas HardyJoni MitchellMary Oliver, Sylvia Plath, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and William Wordsworth.

Hope you get a chance to enjoy checking poetry during this National Poetry Month. I also hope you are able to enjoy this National Gardening and Lawn Month by spending time in the great outdoors. Remember you can enjoy poetry through the eyes of Cam in volume one of her series, and you can enjoy urban gardens through both volumes of Words In Our Beak because the stories are set in my rooftop garden.


Hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can be found wherever books are sold.


Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books. Additionally, I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White CollectionKaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.


When the third volume of the hard-cover version of Words In Our Beak was released, I withdrew from promoting my former versions of Words In Our Beak. 

The very first one is an iBook and went into Apple's book store in 2015.

This was followed by an ePub version...

... that is available on Amazon and was also published in 2015.

Subsequently, Words In Our Beak's digital versions were published as a soft-cover book (with slight variations) by MagCloud in 2017.

Its press release can be read by clicking here.  

Now with the release of BIRD TALES....

... I've been advised to make mention of my early versions of volume one of Words In Our Beak, they do vary ever so slightly in content from the hard-cover version of volume one.

As of this addendum, I do not intend to create digital or soft-cover versions of Words In Our Beak Volume Two or Words In Our Beak Volume Three.
