Is that a Poem in your Pocket?

April 14, 2008 at 2:14 pm 1 comment

This Thursday, April 17, is “Poem in Your Pocket” Day (in conjunction with National Poetry Month). The idea is that you pick out a favorite poem, copy it down, and carry it with you in your pocket all day. Throughout out the day, you take it out and re-read it – maybe share it with your friends and colleagues. And students.

What poem will you choose? What poem will I choose? I’m tempted to pick a new friend from the Billy Collins books at hand; I’m quite a little bit in love with his words.  But perhaps I should go more old-school?

Traci Gardner, with NCTE Inbox, wrote about the event here. Take a look, and maybe get some ideas yourself!

    So – what poem did you end up choosing?

The Bee’s Knees

This is the teaching journal of a student first-year second-year THIRD-YEAR (!!!) English teacher. I am writing this blog as a reflection for myself, a way to keep friends and family updated, and a sharing-ground between other educators online. I love comments!

I am striving to maintain anonymity on this blog so that I may more freely interact with my fellow edubloggers. If you know who I am, please help me protect my anonymity in your comments. I use pseudonyms or initials for everyone I write about to preserve their anonymity as well.
