  Hold April  
  Hold April was Jesse Stuart’s his fifth published book of poetry. The year previous to the publication of this small volume of poems, Stuart was awarded a $5000 prize from the American Academy of Poets, representing up to that date the largest such grant given to a poet by the organization. One reviewer called Hold April “a beautiful book, a rare book, with its own golden place in our too-often shadowy literature” (Richardson, Jesse, p. 421).
