Reading poetry is great for emerging readers because many poems are short and sweet. Built around rhymes and rhythm they are both playful and fun. After all, songs are a form of poetry. “The Road Not Taken”, by Robert Frost is a photographic depiction of a quiet moment in nature, and it is a perfect starter poem to have on your wall and stilly gaze upon. Or to memorize and impress friends and family with.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
