Keep A Poem In Your Pocket
By Beatrice Schenk de Regniers
Keep a poem in your pocket
And a picture in your head
And you'll never feel lonely
At night when you're in bed.

Have a happy Poem in Your Pocket Day, and Happy Writing!

What a fun holiday. Thanks for the heads up!ReplyDelete
Of all things I just received a wonderful book of Haiku poetry, and feel like many of them fit well in a pocket...ReplyDelete
What a sweet little way to celebrate poetry. I just need to where something w/pockets tomorrow... =DReplyDelete
Oh cool. I love poetry and I don't read it nearly enough.ReplyDelete
That little poem in your pocket is so sweet. It's true: if we keep a poem in our pocket, a picture in our head, we'll never feel alone.ReplyDelete
