Is That a Poem in Your Pocket?

Happy "National Poem in Your Pocket" Day! From
Celebrate the second national Poem In Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 30, 2009!

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 on April 30, 2009.

I think I will carry this one to celebrate being an "April Girl" ...

Always Marry An April Girl
by Ogden Nash

Praise the spells and bless the charms,
I found April in my arms.
April golden, April cloudy,
Gracious, cruel, tender, rowdy;
April soft in flowered languor,
April cold with sudden anger,
Ever changing, ever true --
I love April, I love you.

Will you have a poem in your pocket today?

A sucker for a gimmicky day,


  1. What a wonderful fun cute happy lovely poem! Love it!

  2. I think there's always a poem for everyone. I'm not a huge fan of poetry but there are always some that just get you in a certain way -- happy, romantic, memorial or whatever. I just randomly went looking for a poem and found this one!
