Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day!

To celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day (April 18th) I’ve written a poem about…pockets! I have vivid memories of collections that came home in my older offspring’s pockets–pebbles, seeds and other treasures. That memory and the aforementioned Pocket Day inspired this poem:

Hidden in Your Pocket

Pebbles from the playground
Oreo cookie crumbs, still tasty
Chalk for drawing dragons and daffodils
Key to a pirate’s treasure chest
Empty gum wrappers for a paper chain
The pieces of a poem

Here’s a daffodil I pocketed after our brief snowstorm on Monday. Fortunately the snow melted a few hours after it fell!
