Carpenter, Margot Poetry Shows: We Can Honestly Like the World! Literature- Poetry
Children Learn what poetry truly is and how it shows what the world is and how they want to be! Through poems by such poets as Ruben Dario, Po Chu-I, Lewis Carroll, and more, children learn that poetic music comes from a person's seeing the world honestly, as the oneness of opposites. These are the same opposites that are in them, in their family, in classmates--like soft and hard, slow and fast, high and low. Poetry will be closer to chidlren, as they see that it has beauty & power! The music of a true poem makes for a big feeling of honestly liking the world!
