Last chance: Come celebrate poetry with us!

Things have been busy for me in the real world - I've hardly had time to pay many visits here to Small-leaved Shamrock, and certainly haven't posted much here lately.  One of the projects that I've been busy with is writing poetry this U.S. National Poetry Month 2010.  I hope you've spent a little time with poetry yourself this spring.

If not (or if so!) come join us for the upcoming 19th edition of the Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture: a celebration of Irish verse.  Otherwise known as the Small-leaved Shamrock Poetry Party!, here are the details:

The Irish have long been known for the "gift of gab".  They have a creative way with words that ranges from the beautifully touching ballad to the belly-laugh limerick.  In honor of U.S. National Poetry Month this April 2010, Small-leaved Shamrock will host a Poetry Party

Have a bit of Irish verse that has touched your soul? Know a hilarious limerick that you'd like to share (in good taste, of course)? How about your favorite Irish blessing? Share a poem in the Irish tradition on your blog, and submit it to the poetry carnival.  Can't find something that fits with the theme of your blog? Write a poem of your own and share it with us.

Deadline for submissions to the Small-leaved Shamrock Poetry Party edition of the carnival is Monday, April 26, 2010. This edition will be published at Small-leaved Shamrock on Poem in Your Pocket Day, Thursday, April 29, 2010.
