April 14th is National Poem in Your Pocket Day!
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.
Poems from pockets will be unfolded throughout the day with events in parks, libraries, schools, workplaces, and bookstores.
Do you read poetry? Even if poetry isn't something we read on a regular basis, we must all have read a poem, written a love poem, been inspired by the beautiful lines written by a poet. Today is the day to celebrate poetry! In fact, April is National Poetry Month so grab yourself a book of poetry and leisurely enjoy Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson and such contemporaries as Billy Collins and Nikki Giovanni.
So tell me, do you read poetry? What's your favorite poem?
