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 Four Score and Seven Years Ago.
from Henry V, IV, iii, 56-67 by William Shakespeare
Shiloh by Herman Melville
Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln (Always good. If all speeches could be so well thought out, structured, and short.)
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
LAZY JANE (Some kids are like this…)
SANTA AND THE REINDEER (Wish we would have read this one in December.)
