Ode to a poet


Area residents celebrated poetry month last weekend with the “Potpourri of Poets” at the Kent Theatre.
The event, held Saturday evening, April 30, showcased a variety of classical and original poetry read by 25 adults, teens, and youth. Several presenters either dressed in character or brought along props to enhance the presentation.  Sue Harrison emceed the event.
“It was a wonderful experience,” said Librarian Donna Clark, one of the event organizers, along with Rosann Gerhardt and Nancy Noreen.  “I’m so proud of each and every one who participated. Every poem was special, adding a special flavor to the evening. Every person I talked with said how much they enjoyed the evening. We definitely want to do it again next year!”

Potpourri of poets this Saturday!


Poet Robert Frost once said, “Poets are like baseball pitchers.  Both have their moments.  The intervals are the tough things.” Join us Saturday evening, April 30, at the Kent Theatre, 8 N. Main, in Cedar Springs, as we celebrate the “moments” of some of your favorite and lesser-known poets. Residents, teens and community leaders will read both classic and original poetry. Hear some humorous poems like Pat Capek’s reading of T.S. Eliot’s “The Naming of Cats,” or Jack Clark’s reading of Pete Seeger’s poem “My Get Up & Go has Got Up and Left,” or enjoy more serious poetry such as teen Steve Reed’s original poem “Ungrown Flower,” or teen Chuck Hyde’s “Kids these days.”
Organizers say they have a fun program lined up, and you won’t want to miss it! The show starts at 7 p.m., and tickets are only $3.
