April is National Poetry Month, a time when we celebrate poetry and recognize how it has shaped American culture. This year, KUT is participating in National Poetry Month by sharing poems written by students in the Blank Page creative writing programs at Kealing and Fulmore Middle Schools and the Writers' Workshop at Rawson Saunders School. You can read the and listen to the poems here, and you can also listen to the poems read on KUT 90.5 FM throughout the month of April.


Read by John Aielli

Grass sways,
Trees bend.
As the leaves swirl,
In the autumn wind.

Crinkling colors
Cover the ground,
From yellow to orange
To red to brown.

Children play,
Parents rest,
Babies sleep,
Birds nest.
