This week we turn to English poet and dramatist John Drinkwater and his charming poem Blackbird.
A small but perfectly formed poem to start the week, we’re reading Sara Teasdale’s Meadowlarks.
This week’s Featured Poem comes from George Herbert, and suitable perhaps in the week of Valentines, Love (III).
This week’s featured poem, The Voice by Thomas Hardy, has got thinking about reading aloud in Shared Reading groups, the importance of hearing the written word out loud in different voices.
This week our Featured Poem comes from the great American poet Walt Whitman, When I heard the learn’d astronomer.
The last month of the year has arrived – perhaps unexpectedly for some, and for others much anticipated. Either way, we might all appreciate some December Stillness from Siegried Sassoon.
This week we’re dipping back into the mists of time for our Featured Poem and a recommendation from Vic during her time working on the Wirral Get into Reading project.
A poem this morning from one of our favourite poets, Christina Rossetti. This week we’re reading From Sunset to Star Rise.
Our Featured Poem this week comes from the bard. Sonnet 73 feels a timely read from William Shakespeare.
