Give Yourself a Daily Gift

Some teachers (and trainers, too) turn to poetry for inspiration and encouragement. I certainly do.
Here are some links that can provide a daily fix of poetry. Try them, you'll like it!
> Garrison Keillor's The Writer's Almanac,
> Poetry Daily,
> Poetry 180: A poem a Day for American High Schools,
> Robert Pinsky’s Favorite Poem Project includes videos of poems being read,
> Poetry readings from Bill Moyer’s Fooling with Words
> The Academy of American Poets has a listening booth where you can hear poets read their work
