Happy Poem In Your Pocket Day!

What was in your pockets today? Gum, chapstick, the one ring to rule them all, loose change, or…

…a poem?

    Oh, I didn’t know it was pocket poem day!

    If I knew I would have put this one in my pocket which I love and is quite appropriate:

    Pocket Poem by Ted Kooser

    If this comes creased and creased again and soiled
    as if I’d opened it a thousand times
    to see if what I’d written here was right,
    it’s all because I looked too long for you
    to put in your pocket. Midnight says
    the little gifts of loneliness come wrapped
    by nervous fingers. What I wanted this
    to say was that I want to be so close
    that when you find it, it is warm from me.
