Friday Poems: Keep a Poem in Your Pocket

I read this poem on a blog this week and I cannot for the life of me remember where! Ack! I even read it out loud to Jaden and commented on the person's post with his quote. So if anyone knows where I commented, LOL, please leave me a comment* with where you saw me do it. 

* Edited: It was Caitlin's blog commonplace! Thanks Caitlin for reminding me.

I think this is such a sweet, wonderful poem and April is National Poetry Month after all.

Keep A Poem In Your Pocket
By Beatrice Schenk de Regniers

Keep a poem in your pocket
And a picture in your head
And you’ll never feel lonely
At night when you’re in bed.

The little poem will sing to you
The little picture bring to you
A dozen dreams to dance to you
At night when you’re in bed.

So - -
Keep a picture in your pocket
And a poem in your head
And you’ll never feel lonely
At night when you’re in bed.


Thursday, April 30, 2009 is Poem in Your Pocket Day (inspired by this poem) and you can even click here and order the Anthology with perforated poems to tear out and carry around in your pocket! 




How fun is that?
