#NaBloPoMo Poetry month

For help on days I particulary can't think of anything to write about, I've rejoined the BlogHer writing month (I'll probably be a day behind on the prompts). This month's theme is 'poetry'. The theme for Monday was "What was the first poem you memorized?" The answer to this varies. Like most kids, I memorized "Roses are red, Violets are blue.." then alter the ending depending on what you were doing.

The first 'epic' poem I memorized was the Witches chant from Shakespeare's Macbeth. I did that one as a sophomore in high school. I surprised the teacher somewhat by adding the accents and actions appropriate to the scene (semi-acting). I had a blast doing it as well.
