2014-06-11 07.53.57Every 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 It is the duty of the student.

The Lesson by Billy Collins (Love Collins!)

Theme for English B by Langston Hughes (Great stuff!)

if everything happens that can’t be done by E.E. Cummings (What can I say? It’s E.E.)

The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.

THE CROCODILE’S TOOTHACHE (video with Shel performing!)
