I love poetry. Poems are a great source of inspiration for me. During 2018, I’m working to memorize my favorites. I work on the memorizing every morning while doing “ball planks,” which are part of my weekday morning rituals. I will turn 50 in June, and memorizing is apparently helps keep sharp an aging brain. 🙂 Mostly, though, I’m memorizing these so I have them with me at all times without having to carry printouts of the poems.
This is my third in a series of videos of me reciting my favorite poems by memory. This a favorite of mine – “Sleeping in the Forest,” by Mary Oliver.
Thanks for watching. And please feel free to share with me some of your favorite poems! (See all of my recorded memorized poems.)
