Poetry Month Celebration 2016 -- The End

Well, instead of doing a recap post for this final week, I'm just posting ALL the links from the whole month here.  I'll be deleting the official page later this month to make room for my Jane Eyre read-along's page, so this way, all these links will not be lost!  

Thanks so much to everyone who participated!  This event was a much bigger success than I ever hoped.  I'm happy there are so many people who dig poetry and wanted to celebrate it with me.  Whether you contributed a post yourself, filled out the tag, or just read and commented on other people's posts, you made this event lots of fun!

FORTY POSTS!  People, you are amazing.  That doesn't even count all the tags y'all filled in and added to the link-up.

Thank you, thank you, one and all!


  1. Thanks for organising and running the Poetry month, Hamlette. Really enjoyed being a part of it.

    1. Thanks for participating, Carol! Without you and the others, it would just have been me and my 4 posts.

  2. I'm looking forward to the Jane Eyre read-along! I know I've already read it, but it wasn't that long ago. I don't think I've forgotten too much!

    1. Dale, that's great! I look forward to your insights.
