TBT: Poetry

As you just might know

April is poetry month

Check out this photo.

OK, that might have been the worst Haiku ever. 

When searching for "poetry" at jocohistory.org, we found this portrait photo of Edwin A. Legler, son of Martha Jane and Fred Legler, grandson of Adam Legler, builder of the Legler Barn. Edwin was Lenexa Postmaster, a politician, a writer, a general store keeper, musician, and often referred to as the "Country Philosopher." The tie-in to poetry month? He wrote "The Diary of a Country Lad", travel articles and poetry.

You never know what you will find when you search jocohistory.org! It's the place to time travel through local history. Be sure to follow our hashtag on Twitter!

Happy Throwback Thursday! Some call it the best day of the week.
