Why Poetry Matters

 (and what will your verse be?)

Celebrating National Poetry Month

Here's a great scene about why poetry is important: 

"Dead Poets Society is a wonderful film, obviously filled with a lot of references to English and American poetry. In this scene, John Keating (Robin Williams) teaches his pupils the reason for reading and writing poetry, quoting Whitman's Leaves of Grass."

Please take one minute and 19 seconds of your time to be inspired!
