This poem by Rudyard Kipling is to be our next piece to memorize as a family, since we have now fully imprinted The Declaration of Independence in our minds and are ready to move on to a new bit of work. Daddy instructed all of us to sit 'round the kitchen table together yesterday and read the poem aloud, trying to dig deeper and think--really THINK--what the author was trying to convey. We came up with some very interesting and thought-provoking results, and I hope you do as well.
