National Poetry Month on Twitter!

Some of our favorite authors (ahem* Jason Reynolds *ahem) are celebrating poetry month on twitter with a 30 for 30.  That is, thirty poems written in the month of April.  

Here's a sneak peek of day 1:

"and I wanted to say
to Yusuf the tallest eighth grader
with legs of a grown man and
heart of anything but
I wanted to say to him
so much
so much
wanted to say
sweet child
sweet child
don’t cry
don’t worry
the world is yours
but I could not tell him
to just be thirteen
I could not tell him
a lie"
