In our email here at the Rindge campus we just received an announcement reminding us about Poem in Your Pocket Day.  I’m going to carry the poem “First Lesson” by Philip Booth: “Daughter, believe / me, when you tire on the long thrash / to your island, lie up, and survive.” You can listen to Garrison Keillor read it here.

Poem In Your Pocket Day at FPU

Celebrate the second national “Poem In Your Pocket Day” on Thursday, April 30, 2009! Join the Franklin Pierce Iota Omega Chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society, and the Academy of American Poets in celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day at Franklin Pierce!

The idea is simple: select a poem you love then carry it with you (poem in your pocket) to share with co-workers, family, and friends throughout the day.
