Poetry Friday

Keep A Poem In Your Pocket
By Beatrice Schenk de Regniers

Keep a poem in your pocket
And a picture in your head
And you'll never feel lonely
At night when you're in bed.

The little poem will sing to you
The little picture bring to you
A dozen dreams to dance to you
At night when you're in bed.

So
Keep a picture in your pocket
And a poem in your head
And you'll never feel lonely
At night when you're in bed.

How I love this poem. I keep it in my pocket when I am subbing and I love pulling it out and reading it to the kids. My copy is very worn and looks ancient. I kind of make a ceremony out of the process. I used to give prizes to kids who I could "catch" with a poem in their pocket during Poetry Week.

Thank you for reminding me to move the poem to my work jacket next week.

This is the first non nursery rhyme poem that I memorized; and memorized just from the hearing of it, in a way that it seems like I've always known it. I love it!
