Poems by Author

The poems we choose for the children to learn were those we considered beautiful, up-lifting, inspirational, and presenting a sense of honor and morality.  In other words, poems that would fulfill St. Paul's admonition in Phil.4:8, "Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, ... meditate on these things."  As a result, we did not study a multitude of poets.

Here is an alphabetical list of our favorite poets.  If you click on a name, you will be brought to a page from which you can download the poems.
