National Poetry Month Ends

April is National Poetry Month, and as it draws to a close we thought we’d comb through our collection for something wonderfully poetry-themed.

We found this wood engraving depicting the poet Saigyo Hoshi (1118 – 1190, Japan) as he looks toward Mount Fuji.

Saigyo Hoshi (poet) Contemplating Mount Fuji. 1766-1788

Saigyo Hoshi (poet) Contemplating Mount Fuji. 1766-1788

I think this poem is perfect for any Utahn about to enter spring:

Not Stopping To Mark The Trail

by Saigyo Hoshi

Not stopping to mark the trail,
let me push even deeper
into the mountain.
Perhaps there’s a place
where bad news can never reach me.

Tell us: what is your favorite spring poem?
