In Just- / spring: A poetry reading and open mic presented by The Worcester County Poetry Association at Tower Hill Botanic Garden.
To borrow a few words from E.E. Cummings, please join us "when the world is mud- / luscious" and "puddle-wonderful" to share your original poetry or your favorite spring-themed poems by other writers.
