|By Shel Silverstein|
Even with my current lack of focus on blogs, I couldn't let April go by without a post. After all, it's National Poetry Month!* And, the best day of the month is coming up: April 26 is Poem In Your Pocket Day.
I, of course, will have a poem in my pocket. The question is, how to choose? I could go with a classic from Robert Frost. I could fall back on this favorite from Dan Albergotti. There's Jane Kenyon. E.E. Cummings. Douglas Goetsch.
The possibilities are endless. David Ray. Tess Gallagher. Shel Silverstein -- I could just print the image from this post and pocket it!
Or, thanks to my friend Vered, I could tuck a Merle Feld poem into my pocket. (Click on the link, scroll down and read The walk. Beautiful.) I love it when friends introduce me to poets. And that brings us to YOU! Suggest a poem or a poet for my pocket. Better yet, write one for me. Post it here or send it to me. I promise to carry every poem you write in my pocket. And my heart.
*Give me one other reason why April rocks. Long-time readers should know this. It goes back to my endearing demand for attention. It is endearing. Right? Right? Sigh ...
