Poem in Your Pocket

April 26 is "Poem In Your Pocket Day."

The Academy of American Poets suggests simple ideas on how you can celebrate the day.

Select a poem you love, carry it with you and share it with co-workers and friends on Poem In Your Pocket Day. Or, you can:

 1) Post it on your blog.

 2) If you are a teacher, reward students "caught" with a poem in their pocket.

 3) If you are a local business owner, offer discounts for those carrying poems.

 4) Add a poem to your email footer.
