April 13, 2014: NaPoWriMo – A poetry manifesto

The Five Laws of Poetry (being a take off of Ranganathan’s Five Laws of Library Science): 

  1. Poetry is for use, for reading, reciting, and study.
  2. Poetry is universal. There is a poem for every person.
  3. Every person can understand poetry with effort.
  4. Poems should be short enough to convey the message.
  5. Poetry as a literary genre is a growing organism.
