ITEM: RB1495
Store some classic verse in memory
"You will never be alone with a poet in your pocket," pronounced John Adams. We designed our 30 colorful Shirt Pocket Poetry cards for sharing — with loved ones, friends and colleagues, by mail or by hand, the back of each card blank to carry a note from you. All are rhymes from an earlier time, with Browning and Longfellow and Brontë and more. We selected them for their cadence, the better to recite them aloud and commit them to heart and to memory. Use these little cards to find a quiet pocket of time to focus your mind and restore your soul, however briefly, whatever your age. They fit in a Shirt Pocket Briefcase and come in their own snap pouch. Available only from Levenger.
