Ms. Boesch's Poetry Interview

Record music with Vocaroo >>

I interviewed Ms. Boesch and asked her the following questions:

What IS poetry?

Do you think poetry is important?

What does poetry mean to you?

What do you think of poetry and why?

Do you have a favorite poem and why?

Why does poetry matter?

Her favorite poem is:

                         "Smart" by Shel Silverstein 

      My dad gave me one dollar bill
      'Cause I'm his smartest son,
      And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
      'Cause two is more than one!
      And then I took the quarters
      And traded them to Lou
      For three times -- I guess he don't know
      That three is more than two!

      Just then, along came old blind Bates
      And just 'cause he can't see
      He gave me four nickles for my three dimes,
      And four is more than three!

      And I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
      Down at the seed-feed store,
      And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
      And five is more than four!

      And then I went and showed my dad,
      And he got red in the cheeks
      And closed his eyes and shook his head--
      Too proud of me to speak!
