Pocket Poetry – Poem in your Pocket Day

In the middle of Poetry Month, America celebrates Poem in Your Pocket Day.

‘People celebrate by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, and on social media using the hashtag #pocketpoem.’ (https://www.poets.org)

We don’t have a Poem in Your Pocket Day in Australia. But this Thursday (21 April) when America celebrates pocket poetry, I’m going to be sharing a little bit of literary love in Australia.

Because it’s my first time taking part, I’m going to share short poems. The Solage is always a joke with middle and upper primary kids, and I thought I’d tell a couple of Fibs, too. For the littlies, there’s a pony poem, and a shape poem about friends.

You’re welcome to download my page of pocket poems and cut them up to share around. Kids love poetry! Mayhaps you do too…
