April is:

National Poetry Month is the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, including students, teachers, librarians, booksellers, publishers, bloggers, and, of course, poets. Its mission every April is to promote poetry as an important part of our culture and of our lives.

The Poetry Foundation (located in Chicago) offers readings, lectures, performances (such as Poetry Out Loud), and workshops, as well as daily poems.    http://www.poetryfoundation.org/programs/events

Another source of daily poems is Garrison Keillor’s “The Writer’s Almanac,” produced by Prairie Home Productions and presented by American Public Media.        http://writersalmanac.org/
