Description: In honor of poetry month, Walt Whitman Birthplace is offering activities for kids who can "make and take" a poem in the Poetry Corner. Using spring themes of bunnies, tulips, chicks, butterflies and Easter eggs, kids can create their very own poems. Craft supplies will be available. In addition, step back to the 19th century and, with a knowledgeable interpreter, tour the farmhouse in which Whitman was born. Also, hear a recording of Walt's voice reading his poem, "America." April 1-April 30,2013.
