To mark the occasion, The New York Times has appealed to the twitterverse to wax poetic on Twitter (no more than 140 characters).
I was happy to oblige.
How about you? Care to share some Twitter verse?
Fire up Twitter and tweet out a post a poem to commemorate this special day. Tag it with #poetweet so we’ll have a record. And if you feel like it, leave a comment here — in verse, prose, haiku or however your creative muse dictates.
And happy World Poetry Day to all.
