A Poem in my Pocket

April 18th is National “Poem in your Pocket” day. This is such a simple way to share your love for language and reading with your school. Even if your school doesn’t celebrate this day, you can make time for sharing your own “Poem in Your Pocket”.

I will be using a simple poem by one of my favorite writers, Langston Hughes. His words remind me to take time to enjoy the sweet simplicity of spring.

April Rain Song

Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.
-Langston Hughes

Will you carry a poem in your pocket tomorrow? What poem will you share?
