Recitation (The Dread Thing)

Posted on: September 11, 2009

So, I’m not really sure how to start this one.

Today is the anniversary of 9/11 – a tragic thing that happened in our country. It still makes me sad. No one deserved to die.

Right now is also approximately the time that Nick asked me to marry him one week ago. I’m still so excited.

But this is series time. Today’s has to do with reading and reciting poetry.

Personally, I have a super hard time memorizing anything. Why? I’m not sure. However, I’d love to be able to memorize one poem. There are lots of love poems I would love to memorize, but I think, for today, it would be really appropriate to recite this poem on this anniversary of 9/11. But it’s so long, I would never be able to. But I hope you read it and it makes you think.
