2015-04-08 10.02.06Every Sunday 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 The Hungry Ear by Kevin Young. The following are from the Giving Thanks section.

Oysters by Seamus Heaney (I don’t know a thing about oysters..)

Invocation, 1926 by Natasha Trethewey (Good)

The Fish by Elizabeth Bishop (I really enjoyed this one..)

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

If THE WORLD WAS CRAZY (Can see this as being a fun way to teach kids to play with words and parts of speech.)
