Emily Dickinson, for poem in your pocket day -

Once a year, the Academy of American Poets invites each of us to carry a poem to share.  This is my choice. 

I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars –
Impregnable of eye –
And for an everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation – This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –

I wear my poetry most every day. I have a bracelet with "i carry your heart" by ee cummings that I wear. It's one of my favorite poems and I get to look at it all day.

I like your choice.
