It has been a busy morning for us, which is unusual for a Tuesday. After finishing chores, having breakfast and getting everyone dressed, we rushed over to a friends farm to watch her goat give birth. That was truly amazing, and will be another post. We got home just in time for lunch and nap, and though we didn’t have much time before we needed to rush off to book club, we needed the peace and calm of poetry tea time more than ever.
Today, we read from Poetry for Young People, by Robert Frost. For each season there is a selection of poems - I love books like that, ones that you can use year round.
A favorite poem of mine is The Road Not Taken, which I was happy to find in this book and share with the girls. Going for Water was also a nice poem, and one I hadn’t read before. This is a library book, but I have made myself a note in my planner to check it out in future seasons for poetry tea time. We all enjoyed the poems, but most of all the peace in the middle of a busy day. I am so grateful that we decided to bring Poetry Tea Time into our homeschool.
