Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day!!
Today is the day to go around with an awesome poem in your pocket and share it with EVERYONE!! This is a fun way to participate in National Poetry Month, even if you don't usually read poetry. The poem can be anything from a nursery rhyme to your favorite rap song.
What I do is leave copies of my poem of choice around places I visit on PIYP Day. I posted one up in my office at work, and look what happened:

I'm so excited other people added poems! I didn't even really make an announcement about it, just quietly added my choice. This shows that a love of poetry is alive and well in my workplace, which could not make me happier!!
Besides PIYP Day, there are a ton of ways to celebrate, but you can still get a poem for your pocket! Check out Poets.org's page for different ways to celebrate today, and the rest of National Poetry Month!
