Read and discuss one poem from 101 Famous Poems

Breathes by Walter Scott

Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd,
As home his footsteps he hath turn'd,
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour'd, and unsung.


St Crispin’s Day speech from Henry V:

I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General:

Horatius at the Bridge 
 ( This is the first part of the poem, it may help with pronunciation although I am not convinced the guys pronunciation is right.)  This poem is often taught abridged. Guess what? Why not just go for the whole thing??

The Second Coming Yeats:

Where the Boats Go RLS

DARK brown is the river.
  Golden is the sand.
It flows along for ever,
  With trees on either hand.
Green leaves a-floating,        
  Castles of the foam,
Boats of mine a-boating—
  Where will all come home?
On goes the river
  And out past the mill, 
Away down the valley,
  Away down the hill.
Away down the river,
  A hundred miles or more,
Other little children 
  Shall bring my boats ashore
