National Poetry Month comes along, and I have such high hopes of doing so much. The month flies by, leaving me wishing I had emphasized this genre more.
We did read poetry in class: ”The Charge of the Light Brigade,” “The Destroyer,” and others.
We (my Beta Club) did host a Poetry Slam. Those are always such awesome events, to sit and listen to students read/recite poetry, all just a bit hesitant to share, for poetry does seems to be a bit more personal type of text, since it seems to reflect the heart and soul in some way.
I joined a poetry challenge and wrote a few poems, all of which I am proud, for they, too, reflect my heart and soul.
Still wishing I had done more…that will be a goal for 2012-13, which, by the way….is already on my mind!
