POETRY MONTH! OLDIES BUT GOODIES!



Poetry is like a song, like a psalm, like a prayer. 
Poetry is different things to many people, and April being Poetry Month,
The Latina Book Club is celebrating by featuring Latino poets all month long.


Today we share poems from some of the Leading Latino Poets of our time—all award winning poets, but better yet, they speak to our inner soul.  Happy Reading!



GABRIELA MISTRAL
First Latin American writer to ever win Nobel Prize for Literature. This poet and educator wrote about love and desolation and tenderness lost.



PABLO NERUDA
Also a Nobel Prize for Literature winner, he was best known for his romantic poetry.



JULIA DE BURGOS
Leading Puerto Rican poet, she often wrote of her homeland and how much she missed the land, the people, the river.



OCTAVIO PAZ
Another Nobel Prize winner, his poems were heavy into surrealism and we loved it.
