Poems for 2009-2010

I finally took some time this afternoon to finish selecting poems for the girls to memorize this year and to print them on index cards for their memory boxes. All the poems this year either came from the Rod & Staff 5 English book of Favorite Poems Old and New by Ferris.

Thy Word by Edwin Hodder (Jessie only)
All Things Bright and Beautiful by Cecil Alexander (Violet only)
One Gentle Word by Anonymous
Night by William Blake
Four Leaf Clover by Ella Higginson
Long, Long, Ago by Anonymous
Three Gates by Anonymous
Roads Go Ever On and On by J. R. R. Tolkein
What Robin Told by George Cooper
The Sun's Travels by Robert Louis Stevenson

On our optional extras list if we need more poems...
America by Samuel Francis Smith
We Thank Thee by Anonymous
Little Things by Julia A. F. Carney
