Happy World Poetry Day!
So what is this day all about?
"UNESCO first adopted 21 March as World Poetry Day during its 30th General Conference in Paris in 1999, with the aim of supporting linguistic diversity through poetic expression and increasing the opportunity for endangered languages to be heard.
#WorldPoetryDay is the occasion to honour poets, revive oral traditions of poetry recitals, promote the reading, writing, and teaching of poetry....
The United Nations also has a page devoted to the event, with messages, multimedia, and resources.
As they say on their page...
"Poetry reaffirms our common humanity by revealing to us that individuals, everywhere in the world, share the same questions and feelings. Poetry is the mainstay of oral tradition and, over centuries, can communicate the innermost values of diverse cultures."
I have been sharing my poetry and song on my various blogs since 2002 and never actually got around to an actual theme song that I recall; At least a piece that I called by such a name.
Let me know what you think, hee, hee!
