I'm taking the National Poetry Month Memorization Challenge! Of course I am! I invented it! Every week in April, I will memorize a poem and share it with the world, here on this very Crowdrise page. Please show your support and encouragement by sponsoring me in this challenge with a donation to poetry education, performance, and publishing.
I plan to memorize:
- "Honey and Paper" by Monika Cooper
- "Let me not to the marriage of true minds" by William Shakespeare
- "Death, be not proud" by John Donne
- "Death of a Cat" by Michael Larson
On Saturday, April 30 at 2PM, I'll be at The Wild Detectives with the rest of the team for a big recitation party. Hope to see you there!
