OBJECTIVE: TO INSTILL A LOVE OF POETRY AND ENCOURAGE THE MEMORIZATION OF POEMS

"The soldier fights for his native land
but the poet touches that land with the charm that makes it worth fighting for...
The statesman enlarges and orders liberty in the State, 
but the poet fosters the love of liberty in the heart of the citizen."

--Newell Dwight Hillis
