30 Poems in 30 Days: April 15

Sunday, April 15, 2012

On April 15th, 1912 the Tianic sank after colliding with an iceberg. Today marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking.  Our poem for today is A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky by Lewis Carroll. This is not a Titanic poem.  It's a poem about a very different kind of boat ride, one that is sunny and pleasant and very far away from any icebergs!

However, if you want to learn more about the Titanic disaster check out these books:
