National Poetry Month each April is the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K-12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, literary events curators, publishers, bloggers, and, of course, poets marking poetry's important place in our culture and our lives. 
There is lots of wonderful information here - including signing up to receive a new poem every day!
Poem In Your Pocket
On the final day of the month, select a poem, carry it with you, and share it with others at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, street corners, and on social media using the hashtag #pocketpoem. The 2020 Poem in Your Pocket Day will take place on April 30th.

There's nothing like a "pinch of poetry" to brighten my day or spark my imagination and no escape better than the places I travel to found between the pages of a great book."
