2000 was my most prolific poetry year; I wrote 221 poems in 2000. That's more than any other TWO years combined (only 1990 + 2001 would come close). My least productive month — August, with only nine — still saw more poems than several other years on my chart.

So it's no stretch that my journal has always called 2000 "The Year Of The Poem".
