Do you know who this is?

Mystery PoetWe thought this was Longfellow.  I’m really bad at magic-eye but thought the National Poetry Month poster was too cool to pass up for my YA display.  At first I thought it was Shakespeare with his big collar but upon reexamination and much doubt from the circ. staff at my library who saw a man with a beard, we proded on with the search.  Guesses were Frederick Douglas, although we eliminated him since he isn’t known as a poet, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.  However upon examination of the website again, the image is that of Walt Whitman. 

If want your own poster, visit www.poets.org.  It’s free for libraries and educational institutions.
