Poetry Out Loud

So, at my school Poetry Out Loud is a thing the teachers love to make us do. Usually it's only 9th graders - sometimes 10th graders too - who have to do it, but my AP English teacher thought it would be great for us to do it too. I am not much of a poetry lover, and honestly don't understand much of it. I get music, which is kind of poetry, but with singing and stuff. Anyway, I just thought I would share the poem that I chose, because it is one of those rare ones that I actually love. 

If anybody is interested in knowing, I only got a B on my reciting, because I kind of panicked and forgot everything, but that doesn't matter, here you go:


by Mary Weston Fordham

Sleep, love sleep,
The night winds sigh,
In soft lullaby.
The Lark is at rest
With the dew on her breast.
So close those dear eyes,
That borrowed their hue
From the heavens so blue,
Sleep, love sleep.

Sleep, love sleep,
The pale moon looks down
On the valleys around,
The Glow Moth is flying,
The South wind is sighing,
And I am low lying,
With lute deftly strung,
To pour out my song,
Sleep, love sleep.

Crash Into You by Katie McGarry


Title: Crash Into You (Pushing the Limits #3)
Author: Katie McGarry

474 pages, November 26th 2013, Harlequin Teen
Goodreads' synopsis: "The girl with straight As, designer clothes and the perfect life-that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private-school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers...and she's just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker-a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind.
Isaiah has secrets, too. About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel. The last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks-no matter how angelic she might look.
But when their shared love of street racing puts both their lives in jeopardy, they have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they'll go to save each other."
