- I started with "Introduction to Poetry" by Billy Collins.
- "The Tyger" by William Blake.
- "Jabberwocky" by Lewis Carroll.
- "This Is Just to Say" by William Carlos Williams.
- "Lines" by Martha Collins
"Jabberwocky" was a poem some students had heard or read before. All the others were new to them. We did comment on the made up words in the Lewis Carroll poem. And a student did mention how "This Is Just to Say" was a poem of apology.
