I am trying to come up with a Top 9 of British poems and/or almost poems. I require my high school students to memorize one poem a month. Sometimes, it is technically not a poem but a selection from a larger work that I treat as a poem, such as the "Song of the Witches" from Macbeth: "Double, double toil and trouble; / Fire burn and caldron bubble."
Any suggestions you may have are very much welcome. Just post them or their titles in the comments section below or email me.
One a month for nine months.
I have a few already set because of the holiday/liturgical seasons.
