In my English class, my teacher has been encouraging us to read poetry. At the beginning of every week, she posts what is called our weekly poem, which is basically just a poem for our week.
I'm finding i have a love for poetry. I'm finding i have a love for the way the words flow together and whisper the words i can't. Today's poem was called If you forget me by Pablo Neruda.
I kind of fell in love. Most weeks I'm usually like "Yes, I love that!" But this week it was more like "Yes Ms. Harnish, YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!!!"
We're studying Love and Tragedy, since we're beginning Romeo and Juliet this week. It makes me happy. So if you're looking for a great poem to check out today (Does anybody really check out poetry when they need something to do???) then check out that one. I really loved the first bit (Ok, that would be most of it up until the last section.)
