Poem in Your Pocket Day

Today is “Poem in Your Pocket Day,” part of the celebration of National Poetry Month.

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?
