26 posts | 6 read | 5 reading | 47 to read
A Poem For Every Night of the Year is a magnificent collection of 366 poems compiled by Allie Esiri, one to share for every night of the year. The poems - together with introductory paragraphs - have a link to the date on which they appear. Shakespeare celebrates midsummer night, Maya Angelou International Women's Day and Lewis Carroll April Fool's day. Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with all the family, it contains a full spectrum of poetry from familiar favourites to exciting contemporary voices. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, W. B. Yeats, A. A. Milne and Christina Rossetti sit alongside Roger McGough, Carol Ann Duffy and Benjamin Zephaniah.

In the next week or so, we have 2 days with temps below mid 30s, but most days we have 40s, 50s, temps. A thaw truly is in sight.

In memory of Martin Luther King who still was “climbin‘” decades after Langston wrote this poem.

#poetry #apoemforeverynightoftheyear

I learned to savor and appreciate this poem when co-teaching English with a now retired, incredible teacher, published author, and poet in her own right.
Tonight‘s poem.

My daughter and I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of reading a poem together every night at bedtime. This is a lovely selection of poems with lots of variety in terms of style, form & subject matter, some modern, some old, some well-known & some a new discovery. It really is a great introduction to poetry & we have bought the companion volume because we don't want to lose this part of our day! Recommended for children & adults alike!

1 January: New Every Morning by Susan Coolidge

Every day is a fresh beginning,
Listen my soul to the glad refrain.
And, spite of old sorrows
And older sinnng,
Troubles forecasted
And possible pain,
Take heart with a day and begin again.

Happy New Year‘s night Littens!

rather_be_reading ive been wanting this forever! 5mo

Reading poem # 1 tomorrow evening, January 1. I hope to be more diligent in reading a poem a night in 2022.🎉🎉

Kdgordon88 I am joining you in this quest with this book and exploring poetry. Hope you don‘t mind! 5mo
kspenmoll @Kdgordon88 Of course not! That would give me incentive to keep it up! I will tag you if/when I post anything! 5mo
bnp Sounds like a great project. I ran across Joy Harjo's Living Nations Living Words project where you can listen to several Native American poets reading their poetry here https://loc.gov/programs/poetry-and-literature/poet-laureate/poet-laureate-proje... 5mo
kspenmoll @bnp Thank you so much!!!! 5mo

31 January * In the Quiet Night

The floor before my bed is bright:
Moonlight – like hoarfrost - in my room.
I lift my head and watch the moon.
I drop my head and think of home.

Goodnight Littens. Sleep well.

This book... not only is it beautiful, but the poem for 4th November, the anniversary of the death of Wilfred Owen, is Dulce Et Decorum Est. Such a powerful poem....

Every year both of my children get a book that coincides with their birthday. This is Florence‘s book for 2018. I love the idea of reading a poem every night before bed. I think the pages could have been a better quality and would have loved more illustrations but the small blurbs about each poem are excellent.

These two are projects that will keep me going, one for months, the other for the whole year. Anyone else got any longer term projects going?

Loved this beautiful book!
Takes you on a journey through history, seasons, tells of festivals and traditions from different countries, cultures, and religions. Even poems including historical events. Each poem includes an introductory paragraph as well.
Some of the poets featured are Shakespeare, Angelou, Carroll, Yeats, A.A. Milne, Carol Anne Duffy and many more.
I didnt love every poem but most I did. Great way to add poetry to your day.

#bookishresolutions I have a few for the coming year. Mainly, I want to read more poetry and have this book that has a poem for each day of the year. Also, I have a lot of unread books on my shelf and on my Kindle, so I want to put more effort into reading those, so I'll limit book buys and the number I check out from the library. Finally, I'm excited to start my new reading log for 2017. #readjanuary

My best boy received this for Christmas, and I'm going to do my best to read a poem to him and his big sister every night of 2017.

Such a beautiful poetry book and a little something for everyday! I found today's entry particularly perfect- the Hogwart's sorting song! 😊😊😊

MrBook Oh my, *love* that cover! 6y
Laura317 I could really get into that. I'm not much of a poetry reader. Maybe this would get my toe wet. 6y
TheLondonBookworm @MrBook soo pretty!!! :) 6y
