Pocket a Verse to Celebrate Poetry Month
LYNN NEARY, host:
Good morning. I'm Lynn Neary.
Inside pockets of pants, shirts and jackets today, Americans just might have something to say — in the form of a poem they'll try to share with family and friends and all others who dare to listen to poetry in celebration of Poetry Month across the nation. It's the first National Poem in Your Pocket Day, and poetry lovers just might say it's the start of a worthy tradition.
So to join in the fun, just let me say it is MORNING EDITION.
