I heard about this day last year and was looking forward to participating all year long. I'm a subscriber to the Poem a Day emails from Poets.org. When I would get one I especially liked I would flag it (well, star it is what Google uses). Today I went through and found my favorite of the starred poems and created a layout for it and printed it up.
My plans were to do the layout old zine style cut and paste, but the day kind of snuck up on me. When I realized it was tomorrow and I was actually going to be out and about tomorrow I wanted to make sure I took the time to make some poems for my pocket. People will be receiving the poem Detail of the Woods by Richard Siken. Here's a scan of my layout.
You can participate and print up some poems that Poets.org have all ready to go. Or you can print out one of your favorite poems.
It's a great way to recognize poetry and National Poetry Month. Plus, you might discover a new poet you really like, like I did. Have fun!
