CapturepoemDo you know what day it is today? It’s Poem in Your Pocket Day!

Starting in 2002, the New York City Departments of Cultural Affairs and Education and the Mayor’s office created Poem in Your Pocket Day to accentuate the city’s National Poetry Month activities. Since then, it has grown and spread nationwide. In 2008, the Academy of American Poets began encouraging  individuals to join and share poetry on a specific day every April. But it doesn’t stop there, as this grew, libraries, schools and other organizations joined forces to spread beautiful words across the United States. And they’ve done incredible things.

We applaud Poet.org’s for the creation of this PDF which allows you to download and print a selection of pocket-sized poetry.
