‘Poem in Your Pocket Day’

Blue pocket-shaped cutout, with caption "Poem in Your Pocket," taped on bottom and sides to blue sheet of cardstock. White slips of paper are tucked into the "pocket." On the top sheet of paper, the title of a poem by Kenn Nesbitt reads: "All My Great Excuses."

Last order of business before leaving work today in Bellview Elementary School library, was the posting of this sign in preparation for “Poem in Your Pocket Day” on Thursday.

The “pocket” contains humorous poems by Children’s Poet Laureate Kenn Nesbitt, as well as a few additional selections.

Observed during National Poetry Month, Poem in Your Pocket Day encourages people to carry a poem with them and share it. Here’s hoping for smiles and laughs through sharing Nesbitt’s poems.
