On Thursday, April 30th, people all over the nation will be celebrating the second annual Poem in Your Pocket Day.
To participate, all you have to do is carry a poem with you all day to share with coworkers, friends, family, classmates, or whoever you want to know about this great poem you love. Last year I carried "The Red Wheelbarrow" by William Carlos Williams. I have yet to select my poem for this year's event.
If you can't think of a poem, you can browse the 25 pocket-sized poems Poets.org has all ready for you. Just print, cut, and pocket!
Be sure to let me know what you're carrying so I can post a list here on April 30th of the readers who are pocket poem-friendly. It'll be a great way to say farewell to National Poetry Month for another year.
