Have a Poem in Your Pocket This Month

As part of National Poetry Month, one event is the simple act of sharing a #PocketPoem on Poem in Your Pocket Day on April 18, 2024.

Of course, any day can be the day to do this, but this month in particular seems right.  

There is a downloadable pdf of some poems you might use

Here are a few of their suggestions on what to do that day - or any day

  1. Select a poem and share it on social media using the hashtag #PocketPoem. 
  2. Record a video of yourself reading a poem, then share it on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or another social media platform you use. 
  3. Email a poem to your friends, family, neighbors, or local government leaders.
  4. Read a poem to a loved one - in person or by phone
  5. Add a poem to your email footer.
  6. Be brave and read a poem out loud (Maybe your own poem?) from your porch, window, backyard, or some outdoor space.
