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 We Dance Round in a Ring and Suppose.
Defender by Linda Sue Park
Zuri at Bat by Nikki Grimes
Casey at the Bat by Ernest Lawrence Thayer (I’ve always loved this one. Interestingly, Thayer himself did not think it was very good…)
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
WARNING (This one is for my brother;)
THE UNICORN (A classic story…)
