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.

Of the Hour, Again

It is twelve o’ clock -

Cinderella’s time.

She has to go.

It’s of the hour, again.

Little Red Riding Hood

meets the wolf

at four o’ clock.

It’s of the hour, again.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel,

lets down her hair

at one o’ clock.

It’s of the hour, again.

When mother stops telling me stories

And I stop listening,

It’s nine o’ clock

and it’s of the hour, again.
