Poetry Memorization – Lovely Lady…
Here’s a great quote from the Institute for Excellence in Writing’s (IEW) website,
“Memorized poetry used to be the mainstay of education; today it is truly a lost art… this vital source of linguistic patterning… Learn not only quick and accurate methods of memorizing poetry but also the fundamental components of poetry.”http://www.excellenceinwriting.com/catalog/poetry-1
The information in Catholic Schoolhouse’s Tour Guide can be used for memorization. In Year One, Week 20, we recommend the memorization of the Lovely Lady poem listed below. Because we cover many academic areas each week, we only printed a portion of this beautiful poem. I’ve included the entire poem below as seen from a public domain prayer card.
