Poetry in Our School Day

Throughout the school day, usually as we sit together at meal time, we read poetry. This term, we are enjoying the poems of A.A. Milne, Robert Louis Stevenson, Walter De La Mare, and Robert Frost. We talk about them, sharing the thoughts and images the poems create in our minds. Sometimes the girls write their favorites for copywork. One or two of these favorites are chosen to memorize for recitation. Since Annalise's career of being a six-year-old will soon be coming to an end, she is the first to share her selection from A.A. Milne's Now We Are Six.
