Thread Name: Anyone here had to recite?
Subject: RE: Anyone here had to recite?
Metchosin, It is delightful to see that someone else loves "Nancy Belle"
" Oh elderly man tis little I know
of the duties of men of the sea
but I'll eat my hand if I understand
However you can be,
at once the cook
and the captain bold
and the mate of the nancy brig etc"
But , no one has mentioned one of the GREAT poems for recitation
" Strong gongs groaning as the guns boom far
Don John of Austria is going to the war"
G K Chesterton " Lepanto" try reading that aloud, it takes on a whole new dimension over reading it quietly to yourself,
Someone has suggested a Hearme of poetry reading/recitation, an I for one am up for this.
