We had nine kids recite this season! They did wonderfully...my daughter chose a Christina Rosetti poem and my son's selection:
January is Here
by Edward Fawcett
January is here,
with eyes that keenly glow,
A frost-mailed warrior
striding a shadowy steed of snow.
Certainly not what our January was like, but, definitely his vision of what "Winter" must be...somewhere ; )
