You will never be alone with a poet in your pocket.
John Adams (1735-1826)
Letter to John Quincy Adams, 14 May, 1781.

Greetings, Poetry Lovers! Happy National Poetry Month.
The quote above makes me think of Poem in Your Pocket Day! You still have plenty of time to head over to Pomelo Books, where all kinds of poem cards are available to download, use, and share, along with tons of other wonderful resources.
Poem in Your Pocket Day is just one of many celebrations in April, National Poetry Month.
Be sure to visit Jama's Alphabet Soup, where Jama is (again!) kindly rounding up Kidlitosphere links for all the special Poetry Month goodness. (As an example, see what Donna's got going on every day this month at Mainely Write!)
The 2019 Kidlit Progressive Poem is in full swing - or, full swim. Find the links for each day over at Progeressive Poem founder Irene's! (I'll post a line here myself on Tax Day, April 15.)
Karen Edmisten has our first Poetry Month Roundup! Thanks, Karen. Enjoy the spring harvest of words!
(Note - I'll catch up later in the weekend, but Friday evening is our Spring Art Walk in downtown Beaufort, so I've got to get my studio in shape today!)
