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.

Irish Culture comes to life with Storytelling, Song and the strains of the Celtic harp. In A Celtic Evening, Diane brings to life Ireland’s storytelling treasures from the humorous Legend of Knockgrafton to the hauntingly beautiful Deirdre of the Sorrows. The most famous of all Irish romances, Deirdre weaves together Druidic prophecies with a forbidden passion so profound it dares to defy the fates.

Enjoy an evening of humor, passion and music with these two inspiring performers. A Celtic Evening is also available as a full musical event with the addition of Michael Punzak on story and fiddle and Tom Megan on accordion, keyboard and pennywhistle. Thoughtfully composed and beautifully presented, A Celtic Evening was a joy for us all.
