The Tuesday Poem Blog Celebrates New Zealand's National Poetry Day
With poetry events up and down the country today on National Poetry Day , Tuesday Poem is celebrating by posting poems by the Best Book of Poetry finalists for 2010: Brian Turner, Bernadette Hall, Michael Harlow. And in the live blog roll, the 30 Tuesday Poets have posted a poem with NZ as a theme or - for the overseas poets - poems on the joys of poetry.
You'll find poems by heavyweights like Bill Manhire and Hone Tuwhare and Katherine Mansfield to a text poem to send your friends to a sestina on a 'Southern Man'. If you don't read a poem any other day of the week, read one today.
