Memorizing poetry gives you a feel for the language, exercises the brain, entertains when your electronics are dead, and carries on a tradition that predates writing. If you just memorize two lines a day you will have a good collection in a month or two. We also  tweet lines (#memorize poetry).

This is a collection of poems we have memorized in whole or in part.   Please suggest poems to memorize by leaving a reply on this page.
