A Poetic Spring

Above: Orion poets Mary Oliver, Jane Hirshfield, Arthur Sze, Ross Gay, Ellen Bass, and Susan B.A. Somers-Willett.

April is National Poetry Month, and this year Orion is celebrating by sharing some of the best poetry we’ve published over the last three decades on our website.

Bookmark our celebration page—orionmagazine.org/poetrymonth—and check back regularly, because we’ll be adding verse by Mary Oliver, Christian Wiman, Ursula K. LeGuin, and many more over the coming weeks.

Also: don’t miss the poems published in the new issue of the magazine, two of which are set on the stunning western coast of Ireland:

“Beehive Huts,” by Betsy Sholl
“Aran,” by Dave Lucas
“First Thought, Best Thought,” by Andrea Cohen
