Celebrate national Poem In Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 26, 2012
The idea is simple: select a poem you love during National Poetry Month then carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, and friends.
Twitter and Google+ are celebrating Poetry Month sharing poems by using the hashtag #pocketpoem. Poets.org sponsors “Poem In Your Pocket Day’ and has ideas for recognizing the role poetry plays in our lives.
You can find a favorite poem for your pocket here. Carry several copies to give out, add it to your blog, use it for your e-mail signature, share it on a social networking site or add it to our comment section on the post at the link here all day Thursday.
A poet’s autobiography is his poetry. Anything else is just a footnote.
