    April is National Poetry Month. Come to the Library to get re-acquainted with Edna St. Vincent Millay, Robert Frost, and other poets past and present. Our librarian, Karen can also help you get in touch with your inner poet! Reading a poem each morning or listening to one (try The Writer's Almanac on NPR or Poetry Foundation's Poetry Off-the-Shelf podcast) is such a beautiful way to start the day. The following is a poem by Maine's new poet laureate, Stuart Kestenbaum, the former director of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle. Maine's 5th poet laureate, Stuart has published four poetry collections. Stay tuned for more poetry trivia and poems throughout the month!

    Only Time

    “Only now

    do you realize

    how quickly



    how we

    are here for

    a blink of God’s eye

    how the light passes

    by us and through us

    how the world

    began with a breath

    and a cry

    earth and sky.”
