Poetry is meant to be read aloud. Select a poem - it can be a personal favorite or one you find randomly - and read it aloud in a way that itself makes it a story. Then at the ending of that poem extend it or connect it to a story -- this has to be more than just reading a poem to be a story.

So this week the audio assignments are supposed to be about our host, and I chose 2 really good ones, but I still needed 1 1/2 more starts, so I decided to let my host read a poem, and make it the all spooksy audio week.  I couldn’t find a …

Poetry Read Aloud a la The Great Gatsby

Me Who? Exactly What?

 
This is a poetry read of a Shel Silverstein poem, entitled “The Meehoo with an Exactlywatt” and I read it for the “Poetry Reading” audio assignment. I like this poem because it reminds me of how homophonic the English language is, which just makes it all the more confusing.…
