Why

Because learning a poem by heart makes you measure every

word and feel its sounds and rhythms first hand in your body.

Because when you recite a poem to other people you get

a first hand sense of its power and impact.

Because when you learn a poem by heart it becomes a resource

you can always draw on, something knitted into your fabric as

you go through life. Poetry by Heart
