POETRY IS (Speaking Portraits) Vol II - YouTube

Make note of any direct lines and the exact poets' names in this video who are saying something that directly resonates to the way you also feel about poetry.  Once you have a list of quotes and people, narrow that list down to your top three.  Bring those notes to class and we'll talk about it in more detail.
