Poem in Your Pocket Day

Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day!

It’s the perfect day to spend with an old friend.  In my case, this would be Now We Are Six by A.A. Milne (or more specifically, Binker, the closest I came to an imaginary friend as a child).  Binker was also the first time I felt drawn to poetry.  Thank you, grandpa, for letting me keep your book!  It’s important to remember that not every poem that is considered noteworthy or amazing will resonate the same way with all people.  For children, you risk turning them off poetry completely if you don’t think of what they might enjoy.

Can’t Decide on Just One?

Excellent! Shove a pocket compilation or a few printed single poems into your pocket(s) and share the love!
