Poetry in motion

Boo practised reading a poem this evening: her class has a poetry reading on Friday morning, and they've been told to practise ahead of time.

Boo chose her poem by herself, and did a lovely job of reading it: expressive, emotional, intense.  She's a natural.  And she's almost memorized the whole thing -- though I've suggested that she have a copy in front of her to look at if she needs to (since they are welcome to read rather than recite from memory).

I'm not surprised, though -- at two years old, she could recite The Night Before Christmas, word perfect, from memory!

Yours, proud of my little poetry fan,
