#NPRpoetry Moment: The Watchful Dog, And A Falling Feather

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

How about a poetry break now? Here are a couple of Twitter poems for you, part of our celebration of National Poetry Month. Here's one from Vermont listener Heather Kohser.

HEATHER KOHSER: (Reading) Short-lived quietude. Squirrel sneaks down budding tree. One white dog watches.

MARTIN: Heather Kohser told us that she sat down to tweet us a poem when her little dog, Moonbeam, interrupted her - or should we say inspired her?

KOHSER: (Reading) Short-lived quietude. Squirrel sneaks down budding tree. One white dog watches.

MARTIN: Thank you, Heather. Here's one from Kathleen Gresham-Everett in Missouri's Ozark Mountains.

KATHLEEN GRESHAM-EVERETT: (Reading) A single feather falls from the sky. I scan the clouds for Icarus.

MARTIN: Let's hear it one more time.

MARTIN: We are loving reading and hearing you read your poems this month. There's still plenty of time to share your work. Tweet us using the hashtag #NPRpoetry. We'll be back with more at the end of this program. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
