As the Academy of American Poets notes on its website, “The idea is simple: select a poem you love…then carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, and friends.”
Squeeze a verse or two onto Twitter with #pocketpoem and use the hashtag to search for and read others’ favorite poems.
The AAP site offers suggestions for those who are looking for a poem, as well as ideas for celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day at your favorite bookstore, library, school or café.
Which poem will you share? And who will you share it with?
