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.
The Unknown Soldier by Billy Rose
First They Came for the Jews by Martin Niemoller (Really good. Thought provoking..)
from “Voices from Lemnos” Seamus Heaney
The following poems are from Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
THE DIRTIEST MAN IN THE WORLD (Good one…)
POINT OF VIEW (geez….)
MAGICAL ERASER – Scroll to the second poem. (Awesome…if only I had one for my brother when I was young…)
