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.
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?
