Put a poem in a letter or make your own poetry greeting cards

<p>Did you know that April is also National Card and Letter Writing Month, sponsored by the United States Postal Service? It&#39;s always a treat to get a letter, but finding a poem in the envelope makes the experience extra special. Next time you send a letter or holiday hello, treat the addressee to a poem as well. You can put a poem directly into the text of your letter or include a type- or handwritten copy in the envelope.</p><p>If you&#39;re sick of all the sentiments at your local card shop, you can make your own poetry greeting cards. Find a poem that fits the occasion, or one that you simply enjoy. Photocopy the poem onto colored paper, print a copy from your computer, or just put pen to paper and hand write a copy. Add a collage or some other artwork, or use rubber stamps to decorate the cover. You can also print one of <a href="/text/hand-lines-mothers-day">six blank cards</a> offered by Poets.org. Your letter (and poem) will become a treasured memento to the recipient.</p><p><img border="0" src="/sites/default/files/images/mothercards_header_small.gif" /></p>
