Poem in Your Pocket Day is Coming

What a fun idea! On April 17, put a favorite poem in your pocket and share it anyone you want to share it with.

Go to Poets.Org to read all about it.

Here is one of my favorite poems from Carl Sandburg:

Primer Lesson

Look out how you use proud words.
When you let proud words go, it is not easy to call them back.
They wear long boots, hard boots; they walk off proud; they can't hear you calling--
Look out how you use proud words.


Sandburg said many things worth hearing. PublicQuotes has an excellent list.
