Are you looking to incorporate poetry into your day? Poems for Lutheran Homes and Schools was compiled by Pastor Andrew Richard for the teachers and students of Mount Hope Lutheran School, but is now available as a free PDF for Lutheran homeschoolers here or on Amazon for the cost of printing.
This 301-page document consists of English poetry through the ages, including several contemporary pieces from Lutheran poets and poetesses. Or, if you prefer a shorter document, there is a second PDF that consists of a simple list of the poems with hyperlinks to the poetry texts.
Here is the description from Amazon:
Our English tongue has a long and glorious history of good poetry, particularly good Christian poetry. Our children should know this rich heritage, enjoy the wordcraft of great poets, and learn from them. While there are many good poetry compilations already in existence, this volume is particularly for use in Lutheran homes, homeschools, and schools, and the poems were selected by Lutheran pastors and teachers. The collection focuses on piety, morality, and sound philosophy, though also includes some poems for their historical significance or just for fun. Read aloud. Memorize. Recite. Enjoy!
Piety, morality, sound philosophy, and poems with historical significance? Compiled into a single, free resource? Specifically with Lutherans in mind? Poems for Lutheran Homes and Schools sounds ideal to me!
