Adventures in Poetry (not a poem, only background)

1. My father reads my family "The Night Before Christmas" every Christmas Eve.  My sister memorized it before I was born.

2. In 7th grade Language Arts, Matt and I performed "The Raven."  He was the raven.

3. In 9th grade, we had to divide up into groups and set the prologue of Romeo and Juliet to music. Beth, Cristine, and I chose "The Bunny Hop." I remember Melissa's group did "Chim Chim Cheree."

4. In 11th grade, the entire class had to memorize and individually recite "Loveliest of Trees."  I still know the first verse by heart.
