National Poetry Day 2023: One of the first compositions we learn as children begins, “Roses are red/Violets are blue…” Even as youngsters, poetry compels us to halt and appreciate the splendor of language. National Poetry Day occurs annually on a Thursday in late September or early October in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The events for this year are scheduled for October 1 and will focus on the theme of change. Poetry is, admittedly, different things to different individuals. It can be whimsical or furious, sensitive or subdue appropriateness. Poetry is most effective when read aloud for the benefit of others.
National Poetry Day Activities
Attend a workshop on poetry.
National Poetry Day features poets in unorthodox situations. You can participate in a “Poetry as Therapy” or “Poems in the Kitchen” group while savoring tea and snacking on scones. Libraries, bookstores, hospitals, and public transportation are all planning events to promote the enjoyment of poetry.
Assume the stage
How about performing a poem at Poetry Karaoke? National Poetry Day offers an abundance of activities for those who wish to do more than simply observe. During a poetry competition, take a number and recite the poem. A song is simply a poem set to music, so attempt writing a poem set to music as well.
Include the youngsters.
One of the primary objectives of National Poetry Day is to introduce young people to the power of poetry. Reading and writing poetry are creative methods to engage children in literature at an early age. National Poetry Day makes it acceptable to spend a day in the library participating in activities revolving around the written word. Organize or observe the various upcoming children’s literary festivals.
