Happy World Poetry Day!

Happy World Poetry Day from the Word Nerds!

Back in high school and college, I wrote my fair share of bad, melancholy poems. Most were thinly veiled laments about how dense boys were or something equally cringe-worthy.

As a reader, I always feel like I should try to tackle more poetry. Last year, I read two volumes of poetry, both from winners of the Indiana Authors Award and one of them, I couldn’t put down.

To help you celebrate, here’s Matthew Macfadyen (Spooks, Ripper Street) reading Shakespeare’s Sonnet 29.
