What Poet should we study next?

Recommended Posts

My kids and I study 2-3 poets a year. By study I mean read a short bio, then read their poetry daily.  Our favorite pattern is to read each poem for three days before moving on to the next.

We've done A.A. Milne, Stevenson, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Longfellow, Poe, Carl Sandberg and Walt Whitman.  

Most of these were from the Treasury of Poetry for Children, which I highly recommend!

Who should we do next?  The kids will all be 7-12 if that matters, and we'll be doing Middle Ages in history.  Bonus points if you can also name a good anthology for said poet. 🙂
