“Poetry is what gets lost in translation” according to Robert Frost, while the French poet Mallarme  said “It is the job of poetry to clean up our word-clogged reality by creating silences around things. “ Poetry is the language of life and made to be read aloud.  In  celebration of National Library Week and National Poetry Month Scoville Memorial Library is having its second annual community poetry reading.   Share your poetic voice  by reading a short poem of your own or a published  poet, not to exceed two minutes in length. Sign up in the library, over the phone or send an email to scovlibn@biblio.org.   Please get your choices to us by April 4 and include the name of the poem, author, your name and contact information. If you can send us a copy of the poem, preferably in digital form that would be helpful

Meets at Salisbury Town Hall, 2nd floor
