Sometimes it feels like there's all the time in the world during the summer months, but they sure pass quickly. Enjoying poetry under a shady tree, with someone you care about or even by yourself, is a lovely way to pass a summer day. Grab a picnic blanket and some snacks, your favorite tomes and definitely hide any electronics. Some music might be great to accompany your poetry, but try using nature as your background soundtrack for just this once.
If you need a good place to find some poetry to start with, here's a great collection of poetry books to get you started. Also be sure to ask friends for their favorites, look up your favorite writers to see if they have anything new or even ask around to see if anyone you know has written any poetry. Many people have and don't advertise it, so they might be willing to share with you.
