National Poetry Month & Poem in Your Pocket Day

As a verse novelist, I take special delight in the Academy of American Poets' annual spring celebration of this very special literary art.

If you want to discover ways to brighten your day with poetry, do visit their amazing website.

Coming up this Thursday is a favorite event of mind: AAP's "Poem in Your Pocket Day."

This rather scary election year, I'll be carrying Thomas Hardy's "I Looked Up from My Writing," which begins...

   I looked up from my writing,
   And gave a start to see,
As if rapt in my inditing,
   The moon's full gaze on me. 

You can find the rest of the poem on the Poetry Foundation website.
