Today was National Poem in Your Pocket Day. As a writer, I was naturally anxious to participate and found the whole event quite silly and fun. “I have a poem in my pocket!”
Anyway, I didn’t find out until first poem, but I was able to copy one of my favorite poems from a textbook, and for the rest of the day the poem resided in my pocket.
I’ve never heard of Poem in Your Pocket Day, but April is poetry month, and what an awesome day for someone who enjoys reading and writing poetry! Here is the poem that was in my pocket today:
by Eve Merriam
a new sheet of paper
for you to write on.
Whatever you want to say,
folds it up
and files it away.
The bright words and the dark words
and a new day
to write on.
*What poem was in your pocket??*
