Many Tones: Poems about Family Relationships

Once again in this Lesson I have assigned gatherings of poems around themes, here, family, and below, interesting speakers. You are not expected to respond deeply or read intensely all of these poems. Find the ones that you enjoy and the ones that you may want to enjoy but have questions about before you feel you can fully get them. Again, take notes on the ones you respond to for there will be an activity on the activities page which asks you to choose among them.
