Poem In Your Pocket Day

I’m sitting in a hotel room in Syracuse, NY with my wife and son Jake about to head out to a college tour at the home of the Orangemen. Tapping this post out on my iPhone.

My colleague Patrick Larkin, Principal of Burlington, MA High School is recognizing Poem In Your Pocket Day and he tweeted this wonderful poem from his blog:

As a musician and very part-time songwriter, I respect those who write poetry, especially song lyrics that transcend cliches and cause the reader to reflect on the larger issues of life.

Let’s take a minute and write a short poem to someone we care about.
