Poems for Your Pocket

April is National Poetry Month, which includes Poem in Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 26. The idea is simple: carry a poem to share at school, at a bookstore, at the library, in a park, at work and/or on social media using the hashtag #pocketpoem.

We asked Roger Aplon, the author, most recently, of Mustering What’s Left – Selected & New Poems 1976-2017, to share selections from his Beacon-based poetry journal, Waymark – Voices of the Valley. Click the link below, print the page, and clip one of the poems — or even take a few. (No rules!) For many more, visit poets.org.
