Today is national Poem in Your Pocket Day! According to the Academy of American Poets, today is a day to select a poem, carry it with you, and share it with others throughout the day. Poem in Your Pocket is a big day at ABRAMS —including a trip to The Today Show with the children’s group to share some poetry and spread the word, as well as pocket-sized poems on the desk of every employee. (This morning’s poem was “Exultation is the going” by Emily Dickinson.) But this particular holiday is just one small part of April, National Poetry Month. You can learn more about how ABRAMS is celebrating National Poetry Month (with Tumblr and the Academy of American Poets) here on our blog. A poetry bomb of our entire office is just one small part of all the joy and sharing of this month.
Here is a fun video from the Academy of American Poets about Poem In Your Pocket Day:
