Stamps: 20th-century poets
Now at a post office near you: poets!
A brand-new Forever® stamp sheet honors ten 20th-century poets: Elizabeth Bishop, Joseph Brodsky, Gwendolyn Brooks, E. E. Cummings, Robert Hayden, Denise Levertov, Sylvia Plath, Theodore Roethke, Wallace Stevens and William Carlos Williams. The back side of the sheet — the aptly named verso — includes an excerpt from one poem by each of the poets featured on the sheet.

Note: although the issue date is April 21, 2012, the stamps may not yet be available in all post offices.
