Winter Tea and Poetry Recitation

A group of seven families (including ourselves) decided that we truly enjoyed our monthly California history group a la CM last year, that we formed a weekly CM co-op this year: The Large Room.  One of the things we planned for the year were three seasonal teas' with an opportunity for the kids to recite a memorized poem.  Our Fall tea was wonderful and our second tea, Winter, was hosted at our house this past week.  My children had a wonderful time planning and hosting.  My oldest and youngest students picked their poems a few weeks ago and had been memorizing/practicing for the big day.

We had nine kids recite this season! They did 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 ; )
