The Sounds of Poetry — Wondrous Words Wednesday — 12 Comments

  1. Very interesting Joy! I never knew there were “semi-vowels”. Thanks. For National Poetry Month, my kids and I are memorizing poems. We’re learning new vocab and the benefits of articulation. Very fun!

  2. That’s interesting about semivowels and mutes. I had no idea. I seldom read poetry and I don’t know why. You’ve inspired or goaded me into getting one of my poetry books down and reading a bit – at least to celebrate the month of poetry.

  3. Great choice for Poetry Month Joy. Mary O. is one of my favorite poets. Even this brief little book shows us our language is infinitely rich? She helps us see poetry is not simply taken in with the eye but with the ear and tongue.
