W’s celebration is for WELL, I’LL BE – Is that a POEM IN YOUR POCKET?

Thursday, April 26th: W’s celebration is for WELL, I’LL BE – Is that a POEM IN YOUR POCKET? The Academy of American Poets sponsors NATIONAL POEM IN YOUR POCKET DAY every April 26th. They claim it’s simple. Just select a poem. Carry it in your pocket today. Share it with family, friends, and co-workers. Share it on your Facebook status. Tweet it, if it’s short enough.

There are other ideas on their web page (http://www.poets.org/page.php/prmID/406).

  Start a “poems for pockets” give-a-way in your school or workplace

  Post pocket-sized verses in public places

  Handwrite some lines on the back of your business cards

  Distribute bookmarks with your favorite immortal lines

  Add a poem to your email footer

  Post a poem on your blog or social networking page

  Project a poem on a wall, inside or out

  Text a poem to friends

What? You don’t have a favorite poem, no idea what you want to carry and share? Poems are available here: http://www.poets.org/page.php/prmID/59. There’s even an i-phone app. Happy Poem in your Pocket Day!
