    I don't know the answer to these questions yet, but I found fascinating information about National Poetry Day in Britain. Oct 7th this year...There is a lot of interesting information! Here are a few links. I hope that helps! The middle one has a lot of relevant information. SMILES, Dane Ann

    Thanks for posting this. I learned something more from Our Soup Family--and yes, I think this forum does make a difference because it is so encouraging to another. Karen

    In 1999, UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) designated March 21 as World Poetry Day. I found this on the web I also found that Great Britain holds it in October I think,,,and as it has been said below National poetry month is April,,,Blessings..Cecil

    Raul has said it all .. The Psalms in the Bible are the most beautiful pieces of poetry ever written.. inspirational and truthful at the same time.. and also.. pick a month and run it by Soup Management so they can set it up on the Home Page and u will have our support for this new venture of celebration on Soup for Poetry ..luv.. Linda-Marie "Sweetheart" of Poetry Soup.

    Hey, Deb and RAul. You said a lot of the same things I would have said! It's been around for centuries. Just got changed a lot in modern times!! (too bad I am still writing like I am back in the 19th century! that won't get me published in many journals!) Luv, andrea

    smile Yes there is a Month I think April in the USA to celebrate poetry. I would think The Tao, the Torah, the Bible, the Koran were all early works of poetry. Light & Love

    The book of Psalms is a book of poetry and that takes it back a long time, April is National Poetry Month. As far as international, I have no clue.

    Olusegun :) Some of your questions are beyond me, but I like your idea about an international poetry day. That would be quite nice. Maybe there is one and we are just not aware of it. love and hugs, Catie :)
