Recently NYPL acquired a veritable treasure: Percy Bysshe Shelley's first book of verse, Original Poetry by Victor & Cazire. The 1810 book is extremely rare because most copies were destroyed after Shelley's publisher discovered he'd plagiarized the longest poem in the volume. Learn more about the secrets contained in this alluring literary gem. http://on.nypl.org/1i4RsNu

For National Poetry Month, we're sharing a poem each day. Today, enjoy T.S. Eliot's "Morning at the Window."

They are rattling breakfast plates in basement kitchens,
And along the trampled edges of the street
I am aware of the damp souls of housemaids
Sprouting despondently at area gates.
The brown waves of fog toss up to me
Twisted faces from the bottom of the street,
And tear from a passer-by with muddy skirts
An aimless smile that hovers in the air
And vanishes along the level of the roofs.

Truly wonderful poet, just wish he hadn't been an antisemite.

Sherlock Holmes is one of the greatest detectives of all time. He's appeared in television shows, movies, short stories, and novels. Get out your magnifying glass and look at the Many Faces of Sherlock Holmes in Pictures. http://on.nypl.org/1kEslGC

I'm also a Brett afficionado, Philip.However, I do have a problem with Cumberbatch's rendition of Sherlock. He plays the detective like a wooden action figure.Well, I suppose each generation reimagines Sherlock in its own image. The beautiful, cerebral Brett will remain my ideal.

Pooh is a pretty funny guy, you know. Stop by our Library Shop at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building between 12 noon and 4 pm today or Saturday and take your picture with him. (Or let your kids pose for a shot.) Maybe he'll tell you a joke, too.

Be sure to tag it #NYPLpoohbear if you post!
