Poem in Your Pocket Day!

As said here, the idea is simple: select a poem you love during National Poetry Month then carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, and friends. Poems in pockets will be unfolded everywhere, with events at bookstores, libraries, parks and schools. In preparation, I gathered my most loved poetry books and perused some of my favorite poems. The namesake of this portmanteau of web + log happens to be the title of a poem so the choice was easy.

Thee runner-up. I will alway love Shel Silverstein. Not only for his poems and illustrations but for his song-writing too.

Note to self: must get A Light in the Attic!

Paris Spleen, prose poetry by Baudelaire, reflects modern city life in 1850s Paris. If only my pocket was big enough, (I have small pockets) I would carry it everywhere I go. Alas, one more reason to go to the City of Lights.

A pocket-friendly slightly abridged version. Being a cloud monger myself, it makes me chuckle every time.

I’m ready for poem in my pocket day. Are you? Let’s share poems!



About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
