Toads & Odes
Todd and I have agreed to memorize one poem per week (or part of a very long one) and recite them to each other, holding a squishy rubber toad, on a night to be dubbed "Toads and Odes." This week it's Wednesday night; selections include a Keats poem by Todd and the first three stanzas of Dylan Thomas's "Fern Hill" by me, Dixie. We hope by this exercise to improve our memorization skills and gain a more nuanced appreciation of language and rhythm.
