World Poetry Day - Día Mundial de la Poesía

Celebrate Poetry Day - Celebra el día de la Poesía

World Poetry Day is on March 21st in the Equinox of spring, in the North Hemisphere.  It was declared by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1999. The purpose of the day is to promote the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world.

"The observance of World Poetry Day is also meant to encourage a return to the oral tradition of poetry recitals, to promote the teaching of poetry, to restore a dialogue between poetry and the other arts such as theatre, dance, music and painting, and to support small publishers and create an attractive image of poetry in the media, so that the art of poetry will no longer be considered an outdated form of art, but one which enables society as a whole to regain and assert its identity." http://www.un.org/en/events/poetryday/
                                FREE POEMS: http://www.luzdelmes.com/ldm.php?ldm=poems

El Día Mundial de la Poesía es el 21 de marzo en el equinoccio de primavera, en el Hemisferio Norte. Fue propuesto en el año 1999 por la Unesco.  El propósito de la jornada es promover la lectura, escritura, publicación y enseñanza de la poesía en todo el mundo
La UNESCO lanzó al mundo el siguiente comunicado para avalar la conmemoración del día mundial de la poesía al instituir ese legado para el mundo:

«Es evidente que una acción mundial a favor de la poesía daría un reconocimiento y un impulso nuevo a los movimientos poéticos nacionales, regionales, e internacionales. Esta acción debería tener como objetivo principal sostener la diversidad de los idiomas a través de la expresión poética y dar a los que están amenazados la posibilidad de expresarse en sus comunidades respectivas.» Unesco
