Every Tuesday I post a list of the poems I read for my year-long poetry reading goal. I welcome anyone who wants to join me in reading more poetry this year.
The poems for this week were taken from Poems to Learn by Heart by Caroline Kennedy. These were from the section titled Where Can a Man Buy a Cap for His Knee?
Foolish Questions an American Folk Rhyme adapted by William Cole (This one is great! I am going to read it to my 4 year old tonight. A great way to play with words!)
Way Down South by Anonymous
There was an old man in a garden by Edward Lear
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
HECTOR THE COLLECTOR (Hector is very much like my little brother was as a child…perhaps Shel knew him back then…)
I’ve been trying something knew with my poetry posts. I found each of the poems I read on the internet and created a link. So if you are interested in reading the poem yourself, just click on it.
Let me know if you like this new feature. I will test drive it for a few weeks. If you like it and want me to keep linking the poems, please leave a comment in the comment section. I would love some feedback!
