Poem in Your Pocket Day – Thursday, April 29

Poem in Your Pocket Day –Thursday, April 29

April 28, 2010
by Anne Leonard

Tomorrow is Poem in Your Pocket Day! To take part, simply choose a favorite poem to carry with you throughout the day and share it with friends, classmates, colleagues, neighbors, and family.

This year, Mayor Bloomberg’s office is encouraging New Yorkers to participate in a Poetweet. Contribute your best short verse to @NYCMayorsOffice via Twitter. The rules are simple: keep it clean and under 140 characters.

Not sure what poem to select? Visit poets.org to browse by first line, title theme, or author, or check out a book from the library’s poetry book display near the staircase on the 4th floor.
