Poetry for 2013-14

We are studying three poets this year.  Howdy is also learning more about poetry every other week using Poetry Practice:  Lessons in Writing Poetry, by Rod & Staff Publishers.

Term 1 – Rudyard Kipling

Term 2 – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Term 3 – John Greenleaf Whittier

Through simple appreciation of various poets, and a bit of structured study, we are enjoying poetry as never before.  We also read poetry on the spur of the moment from time to time, or seasonally using a family favorite.  We’ve used it for years, and some of us have many of the poems memorized.  This makes them a joy for our older children to share with their younger siblings.
