Poem In Your Pocket Day

Today is the second national Poem In Your Pocket Day, sponsored by the Academy of American Poets in honor of National Poetry Month.

At my place of work, staff posted favorite poems on a bulletin board in the lunch room. It was fun to watch as people read poems and engaged in conversations about them throughout the day.

I was surprised by how many people enjoy poetry, have favorite poems, and even recite poems from memory. The celebration turned out to be a team-building experience.
