YOUR PAST IS YOUR FUTURE!

Did you know that reading poetry is GOOD FOR YOU.  You ask, why should I read poetry, why should I read poetry even though it sometimes uses odd words and puts them in strange order.  Listen-up, THIS IS IMPORTANT, POETRY IS OUR CONNECTION TO THE PAST! 

T. S. Eliot, the great English poet said that all literature can be traced back to the Greek Poet Homer because we use the same themes and ideas he did.  Homer is revered as the greates Ancient Greek Epic Poet.  Two of his greatest works are the IIiad and the Odyssey.

How interesting that the voice of the ancient Greek Poet is the same voice of the struggling student who longs to write such words that will make people stop and say..."that's it exactly."

STAY TUNED...
