National Poetry Month & Poem in Your Pocket Day
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.
