    • I’m from NY so when I have breakfast with T. S. Eliot, we have a toast(ed bagels) and tea. We might dare to have a peach later (or not).

  1. I posted on Facebook some of the things Keats and I have been doing sadly wasn’t able to print out the images to have him on a Popsicle stick so I’m using my book of his letters to Fanny.

  2. Here are some of my Take Your Poet To Work Posts

  3. T.S. Eliot and I had a wonderful day!

    He made sure we made to work safely by insisting we both wear our seatbelts before driving. https://twitter.com/locks123/status/621344147228590080/photo/1

    He was great company throughout the day and enjoyed meeting my office mates. But my favorite part of the day was when T.S. helped me file his poems. https://twitter.com/locks123/status/621387514150981633/photo/1

    However, since he’s not an “office” kind of guy, he was happiest when we were finally going home.

    I’m so glad I saw your email this morning telling me about Take Your Poet to Work Day! It was such a great activity and I loved talking about poets/poems/poetry all day long!

    • Thanks Noa! Sharing poets on Popsicle sticks is almost as awesome as sharing a Popsicle with a poet. (Ok. Now I am having a craving for those Popsicles that I used to eat when I was kid – the kind that had two sticks so you could break them in half and share them. Anyone else remember those?)
