On March 17th Tearsa competed in a Poetry Contest. There were only twelve schools that were chosen to attend from around the state (not sure how Filer got in, but happy that they did!) And only one student from each school to compete. The winner from this competition would be flying to Washington D.C. as a representative of Idaho, as there would be a representative from each of the 50 states there.
This is not just memorizing the poems. They are recited with proper pauses, slight gestures, voice fluctuations...it's an art! The poems that Tearsa chose and presented are:
"She Walks in Beauty" by George Gordon, Lord Byron
"Dream Song 14" by John Berryman
"Forgetfulness" by Billy Collins
