Poem in Your Pocket Day 2018

You may know that April is National Poetry Month, but did you know that Thursday April 26 is “Poem in Your Pocket” Day? People are encouraged to “celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day”. I am choosing to share here a poem by Contemporary American Poet Naomi Shihab Nye called “Valentine for Ernest Mann”. I agree that “maybe if we re-invent whatever our lives give us we find poems.” Pick a poem to share tomorrow – either in person or at #pocketpoem.
