I am super happy that Carol over at Carol's Corner is hosting this week's Poetry Friday. I started following her a year or so ago after participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge, and love her reflective writing style. Make sure you stop over on her blog and check out all the wondrous words happening this week!
Oh, what a week is the last week of the school year! I jokingly call it the exact longest and shortest week of the year. It often feels that way to me, with all the rushing about and organizational needs entailed in packaging up the world that existed inside one year of school.
The other day a friend of mine shared a great TED talk with me, focused around the idea of why we need poetry in our lives. I have been looking forward to sharing it here this week! And am possibly even more excited about watching the dozens of poetry related Ted talks I found here -- hmm, 36 current videos means one each week of school next year, right?
Poem XXXII: From far, from eve and morning (second stanza) Now-- for a breath I tarry Nor yet disperse apart-- Take my hand quick and tell me, What have you in your heart. --A.E. Housman
