Poetry Teatime: With the Boys
A must read teatime post by Holly Smothers Grantham! An excerpt:
My boys don’t know it, but Poetry and Tea Time is just as much for me. I love how this ritual restores my weary soul and breathes new life into stale corners. It can be overwhelming to be totally responsible for your children’s education and, honestly, some days it feels like my kids are getting the short end of the Teacher of the Year stick. Just when it feels like everything has gone south for the day (or week), this little corner of our routine is powerfully restorative. Sharing poetry with your favorite people is, at its simplest, delightful and, at its best, redemptive.
