For the last five years New York City has found a special way to honor poetry during National Poetry Month by celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day. This year the event becomes a national one, promoted at poets.org It is sponsored by by the National Council of Teachers of English and the American Booksellers Association, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and others.
April 17th, 2008 has been declared this year's Poem in Your Pocket Day, the idea for each person to carry a poem around on that day to share with friends, family, classmates, co-workers and others you run into. I think its a wonderful way to spread the love of poetry.
What poem do you plan to share?
