Thursday is Poem in Your Pocket Day

Poem in Your Pocket Day is one of the best days of the year. It is SUPER SIMPLE to participate. Between now and Thursday morning, please select a poem to carry with you to share with colleagues, teachers, librarians, students, booksellers, pets, mail carriers, strangers...the list goes on and on.
Shannon Miller sent me Poem In Your Pocket for Young Poets. It is a collection of 100 poems with detachable pages. It may be too late to pick up a copy for this year's celebration, but keep it in mind for next year.
