National Poetry Month: Poem in Your Pocket Day Tomorrow!


On Thursday, April 26th, carry a poem in your pocket. The Academy of American Poets not only hosts Poem in Your Pocket Day, but also offers some printable, pocket-sized poems to get you started. 

What poem will you bring with you throughout the day? Last year I chose A Blessing for a Wedding by Jane Hirshfield. This year, Ruth Stone's The Cabbage speaks to me.
