Husband has been running a High School Poetry course with Numbers Six and Seven and friends... last night we had a reduced number of students and he hosted it here as opposed to the usual (cold) room at church. As I fixed dinner, I enjoyed seeing the kids take turns standing up and reading the beautiful lines of yesterday's selections by William Wordsworth.
The poems come from the book Immortal Poems of the English Language, a book that has been in print for decades, and they work hard at analyzing, discussing and understanding the sometimes difficult and obscure lines. The kids love it and last night the literary conversation continued on until after dinner as Husband explained how he would like to continue next year with the great Russian writers.
