Celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day

Is that a poem in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?
In case you didn't know, today is Poem in Your Pocket Day.
The idea is that folks will carry around a favorite poem in their pocket, and them share it with those they encounter today.

Find out more from the Academy of American Poets.

And so I share with you this from Robert Frost:

Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Got a favorite to share?
